BERLIN (AP) -- BMW AG says it will suspend production for two days at three plants in Germany because of the effects of a ban on flights in much of Europe.
BMW spokesman Mathias Schmidt said production would be halted Wednesday and Thursday at plants in Dingolfing, Regensburg and Munich, and that Tuesday's late shift at Dingolfing also is off.
Schmidt said that some 7,000 vehicles would be affected, but that management is in talks with the employee council to ensure that "this delayed production is made up for as soon as possible."
He said the automaker doesn't expect any losses and will try to ensure that car deliveries to customers aren't delayed.
Schmidt said the flight ban over recent days affected deliveries of electronic components in particular.
