Boeing to add a few hundred employees to assist with 737 MAX deliveries

SEATTLE (Reuters) - Boeing Co said on Tuesday it plans to add extra staff and hire "a few hundred" additional temporary employees at a facility in Moses Lake, Washington, where it is storing 737 MAX jetliners, the fast-selling model grounded in the wake of deadly crashes.

The world's largest planemaker, working to dig itself out of one of the worst crises in its history, said the workers will assist with aircraft maintenance and customer delivery preparations.

Boeing said it plans to move all the aircraft from Moses Lake, an eastern Washington location where it runs test flights, to facilities in the Seattle and Everett areas where its factories are located.
