The American aircraft corporation Boeing has received permission from the US regulator to resume flights of 737 MAX airliners.
The ban on their use due to plane crashes with this model lasted 20 months, during which changes were made to the flight control system software, and a new pilot training program was created and tested.
In addition to the US regulator, the company received permission to fly and deliver 737 MAX aircraft to customers from regulators in Europe and Brazil, which approved the changes and the new training program. Commercial flights will resume for about 450 Boeing aircraft.
Following the news release, Southwest Airlines announced its intention to increase orders for these aircraft. Shares of the American aircraft manufacturer after the announcement rose 5.1%.
