Production of the Boeing 737 MAX resumes after almost four months of downtime.
Boeing Corporation resumes production of 737 MAX liners. Production is being restored at a factory in Renton, Washington, the company’s press service said.
It is noted that the release of new airliners will occur at a slower pace than planned. They explain this by the implementation of “more than a dozen initiatives aimed at improving safety at the workplace and product quality.”
