Boeing fined $2.5Bn, charged with fraud conspiracy by DoJ in 737 MAX crashes

  • Boeing announced that it will pay more than $2.5Bn in total criminal fines as part of an agreement with the U.S. Department of Justice

  • The fine is to resolve a criminal charge related to a conspiracy to defraud the Federal Aviation Administration in connection with the two fatal crashes of the 737 MAX aircraft

  • The payment consists of a criminal monetary penalty of $243.6Mn, compensation payments to Boeing customers of $1.77Bn and the establishment of a $500Mn crash victim beneficiaries’ fund

  • According to a statement from the DoJ’s Criminal Division, " Boeing 's employees chose the path of profit over candor by concealing material information from the FAA concerning the operation of its 737 MAX airplane and engaging in an effort to cover up their deception"

  • This penalty is followed by the news of a Boeing 737 air crash in Indonesia, in which 60 people lost their lives
