Airbus COVID-19 REGULATIONS (Update 03.05.2021)

The following Airbus guideline is binding in connection with the coronavirus situation (COVID-19). The guideline applies to all Airbus locations. Dear colleagues, dear guests, In view of the current Corona situation (COVID-19), Airbus has decided to protect employees and guests that no factory tours will be held.

There will be no factory tours in Bremen and Stade till end of Jul 2021.

In Hamburg we can offer a special factory tour with hygiene regulations. This will always replace the regular factory tour as an alternative offer with a lead time of 4 weeks.

We currently have no tours until May 30th. Should guided tours be possible afterwards, we currently assume that only the special factory tour with hygiene regulations is possible in June and July.

Here with this link you can see the  COVID self-assessment which must be filled out and submitted before access. Unfortunately, we are currently unable to accept guests with "protective shields" instead of mouth-nose masks and people who cannot wear mouth-nose protection during the tour for medical reasons.

Note on the inner-German risk areas: With the decision of the management of Airbus Operations GmbH of 25.09.2020, the access restrictions do not apply - until further notice - to the inner-German areas. Subject to changes

 

 For all other areas that are mentioned in the form, you must not have had any contact with COVID 19 sufferers or suspected cases and that you have no symptoms of the disease. For self-isolation, there is alternatively a negative corona test that is no longer than 48 hours old. A refusal of access due to these regulations does not change the cancellation conditions.

How do we proceed?

In Bremen and Stade: We accept reservations after March 2021.  If it is not clear 16 days before the tour whether it can be carried out, we will inform the customer and cancel the tour.

In Hamburg, we rebook the guests at least 4 weeks in advance to the special factory tour with hygiene regulations, inform them about this and ask for their consent or offer a conversion into a voucher or free cancellation

In order to map everything as simply and unbureaucratically as possible, we convert bookings with a prepayment into a voucher, which can be redeemed for 3 years and of course can also be paid out if the guest does not want to go to Airbus in the next 3 years. We also inform customers about this.
