Boeing plans on starting production of its new 777X jetliner next year, marking a significant milestone in its transition from its jetliner and its aircraft-building business to its spaceplane business.

The 737 MAX, the plane the 777x is based on, will be delivered to the Canadian Air Transport Association’s (CATA) assembly plant in Oshawa, Ont., in early 2019, Boeing says.

The first 737 MAXs will be manufactured by the Canadian aerospace firm Bombardier in Oshiwara, Ont.

Boeing’s move to start manufacturing in the United States follows a long-term deal with Lockheed Martin to produce a 737 MAX in the U.S.

The 777X, the 777’s biggest competitor in the commercial jet market, will use a new composite material for its wing.

It will be built at Boeing’s factory in Mississauga, Ont, and is expected to start commercial service in 2021.
