After a pause of four years, Boeing Co is gearing up to resume deliveries of its 737 MAX jets to China, as per a report by Bloomberg News, attributed to individuals privy to the situation.
The commencement of handovers is anticipated to occur in the forthcoming weeks. “In terms of (737 MAX) deliveries, we stand poised to fulfill orders for our clientele when the appropriate time arrives,” said a statement released by Boeing.
Boeing’s 737 MAX was first grounded by China in the wake of fatal accidents. Regardless, about 90% of these jets have since recommenced commercial operation within the country as of June. Hence, the resumption of deliveries marks a crucial step in rebuilding confidence in the 737 MAX model.
