Spirit AeroSystems Suspends Boeing Production Work

March 30 2020

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.

Spirit AeroSystems will continue to pay employees who are sent home during this two-week period due to the suspension of Boeing work.

Spirit will use the time to further deep clean and sanitize work spaces and facilities as it continues to take precautions to protect the health and safety of its team. Spirit AeroSystems’ focus is on a safe and orderly restart of operations.

When production does resume on Spirit AeroSystems’ Boeing programs, Spirit AeroSystems will align its 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’ defense customers, Airbus, aftermarket and MRO, third party fabrication work, other non-Boeing work, and other growth programs will continue. Those employees should expect to work their regular schedules.
