The move comes as the aircraft manufacturer is trying to restore its reputation, tarnished by the two tragedies.

“We at Boeing are sorry for the tragic loss of lives in both of these accidents,” said Dennis Muilenburg, the company’s CEO, who added that he hopes “this initial outreach can help bring them comfort.”

“We know every person who steps aboard one of our airplanes places their trust in us,” said Muilenburg, adding that “We are focused on re-earning that trust and confidence from our customers and the flying public in the months ahead.”
