Production at the Airbus wing-making factory in Flintshire will not be hit by a decision by Dubai’s Emirates Airline to cancel an order for 70 A350 jets.

A Broughton factory spokesperson said Airbus still has 742 orders for the plane on its books.

In 2007, Emirates placed 50 orders for the A350-900 and 20 for the A350-1000, with deliveries due from 2019.

UK engine maker Rolls-Royce said the cancellation would cost it £2.6bn.

In 2011, Airbus opened a £400m plant at Broughton making carbon-fibre wings for the A350.
