WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg said Tuesday U.S. regulators will keep Boeing "under a microscope" as the planemaker works to address quality issues.

The Federal Aviation Administration said Monday the agency's six-week 737 MAX production audit into Boeing and supplier Spirit AeroSystems found multiple instances where the companies allegedly failed to comply with manufacturing quality control requirements.

Buttigieg told CNBC that air travel is the safest mode of U.S. travel but "keeping it that way is going to require Boeing to step up and the FAA to keep Boeing under a microscope."
