737 MAX Updates


CHICAGO, Jan. 21, 2020 — We are informing our customers and suppliers that we are currently estimating that the ungrounding of the 737 MAX will begin during mid-2020. This updated estimate is informed by our experience to date with the certification process. It is subject to our ongoing attempts to address known schedule risks and further developments that may arise in connection with the certification process. READ FULL STATEMENT

Boeing has made significant progress over the past several months in support of safely returning the 737 MAX to service as the company continues to work with the FAA and other global regulators on the process laid out for certifying the 737 MAX software and related training updates. The company has also made significant governance and operational changes to further sharpen its focus. These two tragic accidents continue to weigh heavily on everyone at Boeing. We have established a $100 million relief fund to meet family and community needs of those affected by these accidents.
