Seattle, Washington - Boeing Commercial Aircraft announced that it has resumed 737 MAX production at the manufacturer's Renton factory in Washington.
The production has begun at a “low rate” after it was halted earlier this year following two crashes that killed 346 within five months.
The aircraft maker’s best-selling plane was grounded in March 2019 after the second fatal 737 MAX crash in five months. Boeing declined to say what the current production rate is.
Boeing said last month it expected to resume 737 MAX deliveries in the third quarter following regulatory approvals, with production restarting at low rates in the second quarter before gradually increasing to 31 per month in 2021. Reuters reported in April that regulatory approval for the 737 MAX to resume flights is not expected until at least August.
