Boeing to halt 737 MAX production next month

Dec 17, 2019 11:43 IST

Boeing has said it would temporarily suspend production of its globally grounded 737 MAX jets next month. Production of the jets had continued despite the model being grounded for nine months after two deadly crashes. More than 300 people died when two 737 Max aircraft crashed in Indonesia and Ethiopia after problems with a new feature. Though Boeing had hoped to have the aircraft back in air by the end of this year, US regulators have made it clear that the planes would not be certified to return to the skies.
