Company officials said at a July 30 meeting that it will produce 737 planes at a rate of 52 per month starting in February 2020, Reuters reported, citing multiple sources familiar with the matter. Boeing plans to ramp up to a record 57 planes per month by next June.

The production hike is contingent on whether the Federal Aviation Administration allows the 737 MAX to return to the skies in the fourth quarter of 2019, the report said. The plane has been grounded for months after a software glitch led to a pair of deadly crashes in Ethiopia and Indonesia.

The FAA has yet to say if or when the aircraft will return to commercial use. Boeing officials have said further production cuts could occur if the grounding lingers.
