Boeing, a major US aircraft company, has suffered a significant delay in resuming operations of its main passenger aircraft after two crashes, and aviation demand has fallen sharply due to the spread of the new coronavirus infection. It was the worst deficit in history, with profits and losses exceeding 1 trillion yen in Japanese yen.
According to the announcement on the 27th, Boeing's sales for the last year decreased by 24% from the previous year to 58.1 billion dollars, and the final profit and loss was 11,941 million dollars, 1.2 trillion yen in Japanese yen. It became a surplus deficit.
Boeing recorded record profits in 2018, but the world's flagship 737 MAX, which has suffered a series of crashes, has stopped operating worldwide, and new orders have declined significantly.
In addition, the spread of the new coronavirus infection caused a significant drop in aviation demand, which helped to boost the deficit settlement for the second consecutive year, and the deficit amount was the worst ever.
"In 2020, there was a global turmoil that severely constrained our industry," Boeing CEO Calhoun said in a statement.
The 737MAX finally resumed operations at the end of last year, but global aviation demand is likely to remain sluggish for the time being, and a rapid recovery in business performance cannot be expected.
