The Boeing Defense, Space & Security Communications newsroom has this evening issued the following Statement on the next Starliner flight.
Press Release, Arlington, 06 April 2020: Boeing Statement on Starliner’s Next Flight.
The Boeing Company is honoured to be a provider for the Commercial Crew mission. We are committed to the safety of the men and women who design, build and ultimately will fly on the Starliner just as we have on every crewed mission to space. We have chosen to refly our Orbital Flight Test to demonstrate the quality of the Starliner system. Flying another uncrewed flight will allow us to complete all flight test objectives and evaluate the performance of the second Starliner vehicle at no cost to the taxpayer. We will then proceed to the tremendous responsibility and privilege of flying astronauts to the International Space Station.
