Boeing makes $100 million pledge for 737 MAX crash-related support

Boeing said on Wednesday it would give $100 million to local governments and non-profit organizations to help those affected by the deadly crashes of its 737 MAX planes in Indonesia and Ethiopia.

The move appears to be a step toward repairing the image of the world's largest planemaker, and helping families and communities affected.

Its reputation suffered badly after the crash of an Ethiopian Airlines plane in March just five months after a similar crash of a Lion Air flight in Indonesia.

The two crashes killed a total of 346 people.

Boeing is facing a US Department of Justice criminal investigation into the development of the 737 MAX, regulatory probes and more than 100 lawsuits by victims' families.

Boeing says the payout, which will be made over multiple years, is independent of the lawsuits and would have no impact on litigation.

The 100 million dollars, which is less than the list price of a 737MAX 8, is meant to help with living expenses and spur economic development in affected communities, according to Boeing.
