European Regulator Sees January Return For Boeing 737 MAX


Europe’s aviation security regulator believes the Boeing 737 MAX is protected after a prolonged security assessment and expects to clear the plane for industrial flights in January, its prime official mentioned in remarks broadcast on Saturday.

On Wednesday, the US Federal Aviation Administration lifted a 20-month-old grounding order imposed after two deadly crashes that triggered cockpit design modifications. U.S. industrial flights are as a result of resume in late December.

“We wanted to carry out a totally independent analysis of the safety of this aircraft, so we performed our own checks and flight tests,” Patrick Ky, government director of the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), informed the Paris Air Forum.


“All these studies tell us that the 737 MAX can return to service. We have started to put in place all the measures,” he mentioned. “It is likely that in our case we will adopt the decisions allowing it to return to service some time in January.”
