Airbus SE said Tuesday that it is temporarily suspending production and assembly activities at its French and Spanish sites for the next four days.

The European plane maker said the decision would allow it to evaluate and apply hygiene, cleaning and self-distancing measures in a bid to tackle the spread of coronavirus.

"These measures will be implemented locally in coordination with the social partners," the company said. "Airbus is also working together with its customers and suppliers to minimize the impact of this decision on their operations."
