Airplane manufacturer Boeing on Wednesday said it will pay $100 million to families and communities impacted by two recent, deadly crashes of the company’s 737 Max planes.
The airline will donate the money to local governments and nonprofit organizations to then give to families impacted by the Lion Air Flight 610 and Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 crashes.
The money may be used for education, hardship and living expenses, officials said.
Boeing will pay out the sum over several years, the company said. Recipients do not have to waive their right to take legal action over the tragedy, CNN reported.
