Boeing to Halt The Production of 737 Max Aircraft Next Month

Boeing – the leading US-based aircraft manufacturer – is halting the production of its doomed 737 Max airliner in January. The decision has come in the backdrop of two deadly accidents involving the 737 Max.

Previously, the manufacturer had continued its production, assuring its customers that it’s making the required amendments to the aircraft’s design and engine.

Though all 737 Max airplanes were grounded for necessary checks and design changes after the crash, the airline was hoping to get them cleared by the end of December.

However, the US regulators, after a massive backlash, decided not to allow the jets back in the skies.

The company said in a statement on Tuesday that the production pause is temporary and that it is not laying off any of the employees.

Safely returning the 737 Max to service is our top priority. We know that the process of approving the 737 Max’s return to service, and of determining appropriate training requirements, must be extraordinarily thorough and robust, to ensure that our regulators, customers, and the flying public have confidence in the 737 Max updates.
