SEATTLE, Aug 5 (Reuters) - Boeing Co BA.N does not see the need to add to liquidity through additional debt offerings to manage the downturn in global aviation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, chief financial officer Greg Smith said on Wednesday.

Smith also told a conference that "priority one" for Boeing would be paying down its debt and getting its balance sheet back in order when the industry recovers.
