Boeing said Tuesday it would further delay the return of the beleaguered 737 Max aircraft to the skies, indicating it would be flying midyear at the earliest.

“We are informing our customers and suppliers that we are currently estimating that the ungrounding of the 737 MAX will begin during mid-2020,” the airline said in a statement.

The new estimate takes into account “our experience to date with the certification process,” the company said, adding that it is “subject to our ongoing attempts to address known schedule risks and further developments that may arise in connection with the certification process.”

The safe return of the 737 Max is the company’s “our number one priority,” it said.

The Chicago-based company apologized to “our customers, our regulators, our supplies, and the flying public” for the ongoing issue.
