By the end of the year, it is planned to put into operation all seven aircraft of this model available to GOL.
Brazilian airline GOL is the first in the world to resume flights of Boeing 737-8 MAX aircraft, which were suspended after two plane crashes. This is reported by the press service of the carrier on Tuesday, December 8.
вЂњThe largest Brazilian airline in Brazil will start operating the MAX-8 for commercial traffic from December 9,вЂќ the statement said.
By the end of the year, it is planned to put into operation all seven aircraft of this model available to the company.
вЂњOver the past 20 months, we have been monitoring the progress of the largest security audit in the history of commercial aviation, which involved regulators and airlines from all over the world,вЂќ the carrier's press service quoted its Vice President Celso Ferrer as saying.
It is noted that before returning the aircraft to service, the company, together with the aircraft manufacturer, trained 140 pilots in accordance with the requirements of the National civil aviation Agency (ANAC) and the Federal aviation administration (FAA) of the United States.
Recall that last week, the Boeing 737 Max made a successful flight with passengers. The flight from Dallas to Tulsa was not commercial: the passengers were employees of Boeing itself and journalists.
It was also reported that Boeing received the first order for the 737 Max after the ban on their flights was lifted. Irish low-cost airline Ryanair has ordered an additional 75 aircraft for $22 billion, increasing its order to 210 Airliners.
