Airbus (AIR.PA) has closed its final assembly plant in Tianjin, China, as a result of the coronavirus emergency, the planemaker said on Wednesday, adding it was monitoring for any signs of impact on deliveries.
The plant assembles about 4 A320-family aircraft a month, about 7 percent of Airbus narrowbody production.
"The Tianjin Final Assembly Line facility is currently closed," Airbus said in a statement.
"Airbus is constantly evaluating the situation and monitoring any potential knock-on effects to production and deliveries and will try to mitigate via alternative plans where necessary."
The death toll from an outbreak of the coronavirus has risen to nearly 500.
