Boeing Statement on the Senate Commerce Committee Report on Aviation Safety Oversight
CHICAGO, Dec. 18, 2020 — Boeing is committed to improving aviation safety, strengthening our safety culture, and rebuilding trust with our customers, regulators, and the flying public. We take seriously the Committee’s findings and will continue to review the report in full.
We have learned many hard lessons from the Lion Air Flight 610 and Ethiopian Flight 302 accidents, and we will never forget the lives lost on board. The events and lessons learned have reshaped our company and further focused our attention on our core values of safety, quality, and integrity. Over the past twenty years, commercial aviation has become the safest form of travel in the world due to a commitment – by industry, the FAA, and Congress – to a fact-based, evidence-driven approach to improving safety.
