The 737 Max will fly again in Europe, after regulators gave Boeing’s
bestselling aircraft the all-clear for takeoff following nearly two years on the tarmac.
The plane was grounded by the European Union Aviation Safety Agency, or EASA, in March 2019 after two deadly crashes claimed 346 lives.
Approval from the EASA came with the mandate of a package of software upgrades, electrical work, maintenance checks, operations manual updates, and crew training.
“Following extensive analysis by EASA, we have determined that the 737 MAX can safely return to service,” said Patrick Ky, the regulator’s executive director.
