US lifts flight ban on Boeing 737 MAX

Boeing executives will work with regulators in other countries to bring the Boeing 737 MAX back into service.

The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has authorized Boeing to return the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft to service. This was reported on the agency's website on Wednesday, November 18.

It is indicated that the head of the FAA, Steve Dickinson, signed a decree that paves the way for the resumption of commercial operation of the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft.

The check of the liners lasted 20 months. Aviation regulators “have worked diligently to identify and resolve security issues that have played a role in the tragic death of 346 people aboard Lion Air Flight 610 and Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302.”

The regulator clarified what design updates the company needs to make to the software and pilot training program to take the aircraft to the skies after the longest outage in commercial aviation history.

In turn, the Boeing management intends to interact with aviation regulators in other countries in order to return Boeing 737 MAX aircraft to operate in them. This is stated in the company's statement.

It states that earlier the FAA “canceled the order according to which commercial flights were terminated” of this type of liners.

“We will continue to work with regulators in other countries and our customers to bring the aircraft back into service around the world,” said Stan Deal, Boeing's civilian aircraft chief.

As you know, the operation of the Boeing 737 MAX was suspended after two accidents, which killed 346 people. Company management acknowledged that in both cases there was a malfunction in the maneuverability improvement system onboard the aircraft.

Later, new vulnerabilities were found on the aircraft, but the 737 MAX was promised to be returned to the sky by June-July 2020. It was also reported that the problems with the scandalous liners will cost Boeing almost $20 billion.
