Boeing says it’s adding about 700 jobs in the United States to help build the next generation of its 737 MAX jetliner.
The 737 MAX will be built in two planes: a 737 MAX 727 and a 737MAX 727+ version.
The 737MAX will replace the current 737 MAX fleet of 737s, which have been grounded since the mid-2000s.
The new 737 MAXs are smaller than the 737 MAX jets, which can carry a maximum of 16 passengers.
The aircraft has been in service since 2014, and Boeing has said that it expects the 737MAX to become the industry’s fifth-largest passenger jet.
In January, Boeing announced that it would buy the plane maker’s 737 MAX plane line, with the 737-700 and 737-800 being the next 737 MAX planes.
