Following the implementation of new measures in France and Spain to contain the Covid-19 pandemic, Airbus has decided to temporarily pause production and assembly activities at its French and Spanish sites across the Company for the next four days.

It says this will allow sufficient time to implement stringent health and safety conditions in terms of hygiene, cleaning and self-distancing, while improving the efficiency of operations under the new working conditions. In those countries, the Company will also continue to maximise homeworking wherever possible.
 
These measures will be implemented locally in coordination with the social partners. Airbus is also working together with its customers and suppliers to minimise the impact of this decision on their operations.
 
Airbus is continuously updating its workplace safety and travel recommendations to employees, customers and visitors, according to the latest developments, following the guidance from the World Health Organisation (WHO) and national health authorities.
