Airbus is closely monitoring the evolution of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic across the globe and is assessing the situation, the impact on employees, customers, suppliers and the business.

The health and safety of Airbus employees is paramount.

Airbus is following WHO and local health authority guidance. In addition Airbus has updated its workplace safety and travel recommendations to employees, customers and to visitors, according to the latest developments.

Workplace safety at Airbus sites globally

Recommendations are being adopted on day to day behaviours relating to hygiene, social interaction, ill health reporting and travel to and from Airbus’ global sites.

On March 17th, Airbus decided to temporarily pause production and assembly activities at its French and Spanish sites across the Company for the next four days. This is meant to allow sufficient time to implement stringent health and safety conditions in terms of hygiene, cleaning and self-distancing,  

We are doing our utmost to support our employees who are affected by schools and child care closures by providing them with a maximum of flexibility in dealing with the situation. This includes enabling home office where possible, while at the same time ensuring business continuity at Airbus to meet customer commitments and complying with national regulations.   

Anyone with COVID-19 symptoms must declare, seek medical advice and self quarantine if necessary.

Airbus is keeping all employees updated on the latest developments and recommendations.

Travel directives

Airbus employees are advised to restrict travel to business critical missions only excluding to high risk regions.

Visits to Airbus from high risk regions are halted.

Employees having returned from any high risk regions must self-quarantine for 14 days.

Staff, customers and visitors must self declare their travel history

Business impact

We have implemented dedicated and robust monitoring to assess the potential impact of the Coronavirus situation on our business.

We remain in close contacts with our customers and suppliers and we are working together with them to minimise the impact of these measures on their operations.
