After US and Brazil, Europe will allow Boeing 737 Max to fly
Reports suggest that aviation regulator the European Union Aviation Safety Agency EASA is all set to give permission for Boeing’s 737 Max aircraft to fly once again.
Reports suggest that aviation regulator the European Union Aviation Safety Agency EASA is all set to give permission for Boeing’s 737 Max aircrafts to fly once again.
This series of aircrafts were banned from flying in March 2019 after two air crashes leading to the death of all 346 people on board.
Since it was under intense safety audit to ascertain the reason for the technical flaw, it was grounded across the globe.
India also followed the suit and banned it. Out of all airlines, only two – SpiceJet and Jet Airways – own different variants of 737 Max.
Since Jet Airways has stopped its operation due to financial reason, all five aircraft of the company’s fleet were grounded.
SpiceJet has 13 aircraft of 737 series and at the time of imposing a ban, its 12 aircrafts were in operation and one was awaiting approval.
"A number of global regulators joined the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in lifting the orders that suspended 737 operations for airlines under their jurisdictions. We continue to work with airlines and other regulators as they take action to return the aeroplane to service," Boeing said in a message posted on its website.
After the aircraft got flying approval from US aviation regulator, the company released a press statement and said, "We will never forget the lives lost in the two tragic accidents that led to the decision to suspend operations," said David Calhoun, chief executive officer of The Boeing Company. "These events and the lessons we have learned as a result have reshaped our company and further focused our attention on our core values of safety, quality and integrity."
