Airbus reduces wing production in UK, German facilities

Airbus has announced it plans to temporarily curtail wing production at its UK and German manufacturing plants, to align wing supply with demand at its final assembly lines, the company said.

Production at its UK wing sites will be reduced for three weeks, the airframer says.

The UK workforce will be put on an extended Easter holiday break while Bremen personnel will adapt to a shorter working week.

Airbus said its plants will remain open to ensure that wing deliveries continue to the airframer´s assembly lines, and to maintain control over the component supply chain, ahead of the resumption of activity.

Airbus is a European multinational aerospace corporation, registered in the Netherlands.
