Airbus to Close One Spanish Plant After Death of Superjumbo

Airbus SE plans to merge activities at two of its plants in southern Spain, after the end of production of the A380 superjumbo left the factories without enough work for both.

The company has held discussions with unions and the Spanish government, a spokeswoman said. The proposed plan will involve closing one site -- which one hasn’t been determined, she said -- and aims to avoid forced layoffs.
