Boeing expected to move headquarters from Chicago to DC

CHICAGO: According to two people familiar with the situation, Boeing Co., a leading defence contractor and one of the world’s two dominant manufacturers of airline planes, is planning to relocate its headquarters from Chicago to the Washington, D.C. area.

According to one of the sources, the decision might be made as early as Thursday.

Because they were not permitted to discuss the topic publicly before Boeing’s announcement, both talked on the condition of anonymity.
