Boeing Company cuts it monthly 737 aircraft production by nearly 20% in wake of 2 deadly crashes

Seattle : Boeing Company said it planned to cut its monthly 737 aircraft production by nearly 20% in the wake of two deadly crashes, signalling it does not expect aviation authorities to allow the plane back in the air any time soon.

Deliveries of Boeing’s best-selling aircraft were frozen after a global grounding of the narrow-body model following the crash of an Ethiopian Airlines jet on March 10, killing all 157 people on-board.

Boeing 737 aircraft production will be cut to 42 airplanes per month from 52 starting mid-April, the company said in a statement, without giving an end-date.

U.S. and airline officials said they now believe the plane could be grounded for at least two months, but an even longer grounding is a serious possibility.

The crash in Ethiopia and the crash of a Lion Air plane in Indonesia last October that killed all 189 people on board have left the world’s largest plane-maker in crisis.
