Boeing 737 MAX is Allowed to Fly Again in Brazil
The Boeings of the 737 MAX type, which have been grounded for safety reasons for over a year and a half, are allowed to fly again in Brazil.
The aviation authority of that country (ANAC) permitted for this after it approved the technical changes to the aircraft.
Earlier, the US aviation authority gave the FAA the green light to return the 737 MAX to service. Airlines have to update their computer software and retrain the pilots first.
On Tuesday, the European aviation regulator EASA announced that necessary steps had been taken in the approval process. The Boeing can probably fly there again in January.
All Boeing 737 MAX jets have been grounded since March 2019. A total of 346 people were killed in two crashes with the aircraft.
The two disasters were caused by a failing safety system, which kept pushing the nose of the planes down. That defect has been resolved with an update of the software.
