Boeing Resumes Commercial Airplanes Production in Puget Sound

Boeing will resume all Commercial Airplanes production at its Puget Sound-region facilities this week, after suspending operations last month in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

About 27,000 people in the Puget Sound area will return to production of the 747, 767, 777 and 787 programs, supporting critical global transportation infrastructure, cargo services and national defense and security missions.

Employees for the 737, 747, 767 and 777 will return on April 20 with most returning to work by April 21. Employees for the 787 program will return as early as third shift April 23, with most returning to work by April 24.

The 737 program will resume working toward restarting production of the 737 MAX. Boeing South Carolina remains in a suspension of operations at this time.

Last week, Boeing restarted mostly defense production operations in the region with approximately 2,500 people.

At all of its sites, Boeing has taken extra precautions and instituted comprehensive procedures to keep people safe and fight the spread of COVID-19.

The company's practices reinforce enhanced cleaning, employee health and physical distancing in partnership with employees.
