Boeing gets another $6.6M fine from US authorities

02/26/2021 - 02:57

The US Civil Aviation Authority (FAA) has ordered Boeing to pay a fine of $6.6m. The US regulator accused the corporation of failing to meet its obligations under the 2015 safety agreement. The company has not yet commented on the fine.

"Boeing has not fulfilled all its obligations under the settlement agreement and the FAA is holding Boeing accountable by imposing additional fines. I have repeatedly told Boeing management that the company must prioritise safety and compliance," FAA chief Stephen Dickson said in a statement (quoted by Reuters).

The FAA has assessed $5.4 million in deferred civil penalties against the company for failing to meet its obligations under the 2015 agreement. The company agreed to pay another $1.21 million to settle two separate claims that were pending before the FAA.

Under the 2015 agreement, Boeing pledged to make changes to the company's internal processes, among which improved regulatory compliance was a priority. The company had already paid $12 million in 2015 as part of the claims settlement, Reuters clarified.
