Boeing on Thursday said that it has completed development of a software update to address the issues that have been blamed for two crashes involving the company’s 737 Max jets that left more than 300 people dead.
In a statement obtained by CNBC, CEO Dennis Muilenburg said that the company was preparing for a final certification of the software update, after which it would begin rolling out the software to fleets of 737 Max jets that have been grounded worldwide since the crashes.
“With safety as our clear priority, we have completed all of the engineering test flights for the software update and are preparing for the final certification flight,” Muilenburg said, according to CNBC.
“The accidents have only intensified our commitment to our values, including safety, quality and integrity, because we know lives depend on what we do.”
