Airbus in Broughton is opening its doors to family and friends of people currently working at the site to give them an opportunity to see where the world’s wings are built. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The Airbus Employee Day takes place on Saturday 5th September, and brings to a close the commemorations marking the plant’s 75th year. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The event is not open to the general public but admission is by tickets provided to all members of staff who can then invite friends and family to see where they work. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Head of the Broughton Plant, Paul McKinlay said: ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“The people working at Broughton are our greatest assets, but we never forget the important role of family members and friends. The event gives us an opportunity to thank them for their support at home and also have a fun day on us. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“It’s been six years since our last family day, which marked the 40th anniversary of the formation of Airbus, so this is an opportunity for them to visit our wing factory and see some of the newer developments on site such as the Beluga Line Station and the A350 North Factory.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

There will be a static aircraft display which is planned to include the Beluga, a classic car display, a motorbike display team, wild-west horse show and activities for all ages. Unfortunately, unlike previous family days, there is no flying display this year. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The factory opens at 9am on the day with the family events on the field near the West Factory commencing at 1pm. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Ticket holders have allocated car parks identified on their tickets and buses will transfer guests around the site. Locally there may be an increase in traffic levels on the day on roads near the site. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
