The American aircraft Corporation Boeing resumed production of the Boeing 737 MAX Airliners, which was suspended in January. This is stated in the company’s statement.
As noted in the document, the production of aircraft resumed at the enterprise in Renton (Washington). Boeing stated that production volumes are currently low, as additional measures have been taken to ensure workplace safety and improve product quality. Within a year, Boeing intends to start producing more aircraft of this type, the statement said.
Last year, Boeing announced a reduction in the production of these Airliners. Since December last year, it has been temporarily discontinued.
The operation of the Boeing 737 MAX was suspended after two accidents. On March 10, 2019, an Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 MAX 8 crashed in Ethiopia, killing 157 people. On October 29, 2018, 189 people were killed in the crash of a similar model of Lion Air in Indonesia.
Boeing management acknowledged that in both cases, there was a failure in the maneuverability improvement system on Board the aircraft before they crashed. After that, many countries, including Russia, the United States, and the European Union, suspended the operation of this series of aircraft for security reasons.
