Airbus’ Flintshire wing-making facility is not expected to be hit by job cuts across the company.

The international aerospace giant confirmed it would be cutting around 3,700 roles at plants in Britain, France, Germany and Spain following lower production rates of its A380 superjumbo and A400M military aircraft.

A spokesman for Airbus in the UK confirmed to the Leader and Standard that its Broughton wing-making plant would not be one of the locations where roles would be lost.

Mark Tami, Labour MP for Alyn and Deeside, said he had received assurances from officials over potential job relocations and losses.

He said: “I have already spoken to officials at Airbus Broughton and have had it confirmed that there will be no job losses at this site.

“However it is always a concern whenever there are job losses involved even if they do not directly affect my constituents.

“I know Airbus is performing extremely well in other areas and I hope this will continue to be the case so jobs in Broughton will continue to be secured.

“Emirates put in a big order for A380s recently which was great news for the area, hopefully now they can continue to build on this and more orders will come in.”

An Airbus spokesman told Reuters that around 10 sites across Europe would be affected with potentially the Filton plant in Bristol on the list.

Up to 465 jobs could be lost from Airbus’ UK locations, it is thought.

Jack Sargeant, Labour Assembly Member for Alyn and Deeside, said he would use his position on the Welsh Government's External Affairs and Additional Legislation Committee to ensure risks from Brexit to jobs were minimised.

He said: "Airbus is a major employer for the local area and the region as a whole.

"I'll be visiting the plant on Friday to speak to management as well as factory floor staff and I hope it can continue to grow from strength to strength."
