Airbus warns of 3,700 jobs at risk

Airbus has said up to 3,700 jobs could go across its four "home" countries because of falling production rates of its A380 and A400M planes.

The European planemaker said jobs would be affected in the UK, France, Germany and Spain.

However, Airbus UK said the firm did not expect to see any redundancies at its Broughton plant in Wales.

About 250 employees currently working on the A380 in the UK are likely to be deployed to other projects.

There have been recent media reports of plans for thousands of job cuts at the company.

Airbus said that from 2020, it would be producing six a year of the A380 superjumbo, the world's biggest passenger plane.

Also from 2020, it would be manufacturing eight A400Ms a year, down from a projected 15 in 2018 and 11 in 2019.
