“Boeing Co. (BA) shares surged higher Tuesday after it stuck to forecasts for mid-year return for the 737 MAX and investors bet a Senate coronavirus stimulus bill could steer billions towards the troubled planemaker.
Boeing CEO David Calhoun told CNBC that he still expects the flagship plane, which was grounded last year following two fatal crashes that took the lives of 346 people, to get FAA approval to return to service in early summer. The current Senate relief package, which could reach $2.5 trillion, is also likely to provide loan guarantees and grants to the U.S. aviation and aerospace industries, which have been ravaged by the global coronavirus pandemic.
“We’re very close to the finish line,” Calhoun said of the 737 MAX return, adding that there were “a lot of options for us in the private markets, but the credit markets have to be open” when asked about the planemaker’s request for $60 billion in financial aid. “
