Airbus to temporarily suspend non-essential activity

30th March 2020 - 13:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Airbus has suspended most activities across its Commercial, Defence & Aerospace and Helicopters divisions in Spain until 9 April.

Security, IT and engineering support will remain in place at a reduced level in line with COVID-19 health and safety measures, Airbus announced on 30 March.

The Spanish government implemented new measures to tackle the coronavirus on 29 March, as the country continues to be hit hard by the pandemic. There have been at least 85,195 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 7,340 deaths in Spain since the outbreak began.

Airbus accounts for 56.8% of Spanish national defence and aerospace sales. Defence activities include final assembly for A400M, C295 and CN235 transport aircraft, A330 MRTT conversion, and parts manufacturing and assembly for Eurofighter.
