Boeing pledges $100 million in aids for 737 MAX crash-related supports

On Wednesday, the 3rd of July 2019, the world’s No. 1 low-cost aircraft carrier manufacturer, Boeing Co. had issued a statement saying that the company had agreed to hand over about $100 million in aids over multiple years to local governments alongside other non-profit organizations in order to help the communities and families affected by lethal crashes of its best-selling model 737 Max in Ethiopia last March and offshore of Indonesia on October 2018.

In point of fact, latest move of the Illinois-based planemaker seems to be a leap forth towards repairing its shattered image following mass grounding of its Max 737 worldwide over potential glitches of its autopilot software, of which the planemaker knew, but did not train pilots accordingly or mention the fact in pilot’s manual, said European and American aviation regulators following their probe on March 10th’s deadly crash of Max 737 that killed 149 people on-board.

While Boeing’s Max 737’s approval for flying again had been delaying over other malfunctions in its haul, the American planemaker had become subject to US Department of Justice’s criminal investigation into the manufacturing of 737 Max, other regulatory probes alongside more than 100 lawsuits filed by the victims’ of the plane crash.
