End of the line: last A380 wings to leave factory in May

Airbus announced yesterday that the last A380 wings will leave the Broughton FAL West factory in North Wales some time in May.

The final aircraft isn’t due to be finished until mid-2021. While the wing plant at Broughton hasn’t yet been reassigned to a new project, the main assembly plant in Toulouse is being turned over to the second A321 line.

Airbus say they’re looking at options for the Broughton factory which won’t affect the A320 and A350 wings made there currently.
