Airbus to close one plant in southern Spain

PARIS, May 19 (Reuters) - Airbus plans to end industrial production at one of its two factories in Cadiz, southern Spain, and merge them into one site spanning civil and defence activities, a spokesman said.

The plan - which is subject to negotiations - would avoid compulsory redundancies and follows months of speculation and protests over the future of the Puerto Real civil aerospace plant in the wake of a decision to halt A380 production. (Reporting by Tim Hepher; editing by David Evans)
