PARIS (Reuters) - Europe's Airbus is closely monitoring the Omicron situation in China but has not so far seen significant disruption to its operations from the spread of the highly contagious variant, its chief executive said on Monday.

Airbus assembles around four narrowbody jets a month in the northern port city of Tianjin, which has tightened controls in an effort to block the spread of the virus, and depends on parts supplies from Xian, which has been battling a serious outbreak.
