Novel coronavirus has been the main reason for the shutdown of Chinas aviation industry since the Spring Festival this year.

Taking Airbus as an example, its factory in Tianjin will be shut down before the Spring Festival, and will normally return to work after the Spring Festival. However, due to the impact of local epidemic prevention policies, in fact, until the 10th day of the first month, the return plan of Airbus factory in Tianjin cannot be determined.

Airbus has A320 assembly line and A330 completion and delivery center in Tianjin.

Tianjin A320 assembly line accounts for about 10% of the total output of Airbus narrow body aircraft, and is the only Airbus assembly line in Asia at present, with an annual output of about 60. According to the plan, Airbus will gradually increase the production capacity of Tianjin production line to 72 units / year this year.

However, according to a statement released on Airbuss official website on February 11, Airbuss Tianjin plant has already obtained a construction permit in accordance with government requirements. This week, Airbuss Tianjin plant resumed work.

Airbus stressed that it will implement all necessary health and safety measures and pay close attention to changes in the situation. Airbus will also, if necessary, adopt alternative plans to minimize the impact of the situation change on production and delivery.

The aviation industry, another major manufacturer of domestic aircraft, resumed work on February 10.

This year, the development of Xinzhou 700 turboprop regional airliner, a subsidiary of the aviation industry, has entered a critical year. Xinzhou 700 is the first turboprop regional airliner in the world to use full fly by wire operation. It is planned to go offline at the beginning of this year and fly for the first time in the third quarter.

Affected by the epidemic situation, the development progress of Xinzhou 700 has been affected to some extent.

According to Xifei, the main work of the general assembly process team at this stage is to ensure the structural integrity of the fuselage and wings around the 10001 aircraft of Xinzhou 700, so as to prepare for the subsequent air tightness experiment.

The development team of Xifei will strive to snatch the delayed time.
