America’s air regulator has fined Boeing $12 million for “multiple pending and potential enforcement cases”.

According to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Boeing failed to meet a deadline to provide fuel tank safety instructions to airlines. The aircraft maker has agreed to pay the fine.

US transportation secretary, Anthony Foxx, said: “It is imperative that everyone complies with our aviation system’s high safety standards.

“This agreement is an important step toward ensuring that Boeing fully meets all applicable compliance standards going forward.”

The agency added that it doesn’t “allege that these issues created unsafe conditions”.

FAA administrator, Michael Huerta, said: "Boeing has agreed to implement improvements in its design, planning, production and maintenance planning processes, and has already implemented several of these improvements."
