Airbus outlines stark production impact of 'no-deal Brexit'

June 22, 2018 / DAVID KAMINSKI-MORROW

Airbus has emphasized that disruption to its aircraft production model critically depends on smooth and integrated operational flow, and has outlined the substantial measures it would need to adapt to protect that flow should the UK withdraw from the European Union without an adequate trade agreement. Exiting from the EU single market and a customs union would interrupt the flow of parts to Airbus's production centers, meaning that the airframer would need to store some €1 billion worth of stock as a buffer – at a time when production ramp-up plans are testing suppliers' manufacturing capacity.
