Spirit AeroSystems Suspends Boeing Production Work

Following Boeing’s announcement to temporarily suspend production at its Washington state facilities, Spirit AeroSystems will also suspend Boeing work performed at our facilities in Wichita, Kansas, and in Tulsa and McAlester, Oklahoma. This action will begin Wednesday, March 25, and last 14 calendar days, until April 8. Spirit will continue to support 787 work for Boeing’s Charleston, South Carolina, facility as needed.

The company will use the time to further deep clean and sanitise workspaces and facilities as they continue to take precautions to protect the health and safety of its workforce against the COVID-19 pandemic.

When production does resume on the Boeing programs, the company will align the costs and workforce to the new level of production set by Boeing. This could potentially include additional workforce actions.

Operations in support of Spirit AeroSystems defence customers, Airbus, aftermarket and MRO, third party fabrication work, other non-Boeing work, and other growth programs will continue.
