Airbus to pause majority of production in Spain amid new government restrictions

The Spanish Government announced new measures March 29, in the fight against COVID-19. These measures will take effect from Monday March 30, until Thursday April 9 (included), and will restrict all non-essential activities across the country.

Some key activities in Commercial Aircraft, Helicopters and Defence and Space remain essential. Minimum activity in these areas for necessary support functions such as Security, IT, Engineering, will remain under the stringent health and safety measures implemented by Airbus to protect its employees against the COVID-19 pandemic.

All other activities in Commercial Aircraft, Defence and Space as well as Helicopters in Spain will be paused until April 9, the date when it is foreseen that restrictions will be lifted.

Airbus will closely work with its social partners to apply the social measures applicable under the latest restrictions. Airbus employees in Spain whose jobs are not linked to production and assembly activities and who can work from home will continue to support Airbus business continuity in these difficult times.
