Boeing 737 MAX allowed to fly again in Europe in January
EASA (European Aviation Authority) has announced the lifting of the flight ban on the Boeing 737 MAX in January. This is reported by the French newspaper La Tribune. Earlier this month, the FAA (American aviation regulator) already indicated that the Boeing 737 MAX is allowed to fly again in America. The flight ban has now been in place for 20 months and is a direct result of two fatal accidents in which 346 people were killed.
With the approval of EASA, the Boeing 737 MAX will also be allowed to re-enter European airspace. This is an important moment for aviation. EASA has carried out an independent analysis to study the safety of the Boeing 737 MAX. The conclusion of EASA is that the Boeing 737 MAX can be put back into service. The Boeing 737 MAX is likely to fly again in Europe from January 2021.
