Airbus SE announced on Friday it has halted its plans on making a new assembly line in Toulouse, France, for its A321 airliner due to fast-spreading coronavirus.

The company's spokesman noted that "plans for an A321 line in Toulouse are paused, on hold. When we see rates going up again, we will reconnect to the plans." Chief Executive Guillaume Faury stated previously that Airbus would "hibernate" new investments to save cash.

Earlier this week, Airbus said that production suspension will be extended in its plants in the United States from this week to April 29, and Germany from April 6 until April 27.
