The savings measures will heavily impact Belgian subcontractor Sonaca, which manufactures and assembles the wing slats and deicing systems for the Airbus aeroplanes (A220, A318, A319, A320, A321, A330, A350, A380).

Walloon Minister of Economy Willy Borsu has taken contact with the management of Sonaca to devise measures to protect the company during the downturn.
