Boeing prioritises plane certifications ahead of launching new jets

BOEING will focus on successfully completing plane certifications, shoring up its supply chain and improving technologies in development before launching a new plane model, said Chief Executive Dave Calhoun.  

“You have to be patient, you have to get your ducks lined up,” Calhoun said at a briefing at Boeing’s Charleston, South Carolina factory organized Tuesday and yesterday ahead of the Paris Air Show in late June.
