Airbus is to roll back wing production at its UK and German plants, to bring wing supply into line with demand at its final assembly lines.
Production at its UK wing sites at Broughton and Filton, as well as its high-lift operation in Bremen, 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 stresses that the 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.
Remote working will be introduced where appropriate...
