Boeing plans to resume production of the currently-grounded model 737 MAX in February 2020, insiders say. By June, production must be at a record amount of 57 aircraft per month.
According to the insiders, Boeing reported this to suppliers at the end of July. The move would still depend on the approval of the popular 737 MAX model, which is currently being held on the ground. The company's hope is that the planes will be able to go up again in the fourth quarter, but critics are wondering if this will work.
The devices of the type have been on the ground worldwide since mid-March this year. The flight ban was introduced after two aircraft accidents with the model occurred in a short period of time, killing 346 people.
The accidents were caused by the same software problem. An automatic safety system would have constantly pressed down the nose of the aircraft. So far, no Boeing solution has been approved.
Since April, the company has significantly reduced the production of the model. Boeing announced at the end of July that it has already lost 3 billion dollars due to problems with the aircraft type.
