MOSCOW (Sputnik) – US aerospace manufacturer Boeing has said that it will not seek federal aid to weather the coronavirus crisis because it raised $25 billion in a bond offering.
It specified that the bond offering allowed it to raise “$25 billion across seven tranches with maturities ranging from three to 40 years”.

In late March, the US approved a $2.2 trillion coronavirus aid relief package, which envisaged help to big corporations among other things. President Donald Trump has repeatedly called Boeing the “greatest company”, expressing readiness to help it as it struggles with both the 737 MAX controversy and the pandemic fallout.
