Boeing CEO Announces Changes to Sharpen Company Focus on Product and Services Safety
Boeing CEO is confident in the safety of the company’s aircraft
The statement was made after the disaster that killed 157 people
Boeing’s chief executive said Monday he is confident in the safety of its best-selling 737 MAX 8.
An Ethiopian Airlines passenger plane bound for Nairobi crashed minutes after takeoff. As a result, all 157 people on board were killed. The crash raised questions about the safety of the Boeing 737 MAX 8, which entered service in 2017. In October last year, the first crash of the 737 MAX 8 occurred in Indonesia. Then 189 people died..
“We have confidence in the safety of the 737 MAX and in the work of the men and women who design and manufacture it,” Boeing CEO Dennis Muhlenburg said in a statement to Reuters. “After certification and commissioning, the MAX family aircraft have successfully completed hundreds of thousands of flights.”.

Muhlenburg also said Sunday’s crash was “particularly difficult” and happened just months after the Lion Air Flight 610 crash..
The 737 MAX is the latest version of the best-selling Boeing 737 family, which has been an integral part of passenger flights and the main source of profit for the world’s largest aircraft manufacturer competing with the Airbus SE A320neo family of single-aisle aircraft for decades..
In the wake of Sunday’s crash, Chinese authorities ordered their airlines to stop using the plane. Other airlines continue to use the 737 MAX 8 after Boeing claims it is safe to operate aircraft.
