REUTERS/Lindsey WassonRIO DE JANEIRO (Reuters) - Brazilian aviation regulator ANAC on Wednesday lifted the grounding of the Boeing 737 MAX, following U.S. clearance of the plane for flight, after a redesign prompted by two fatal crashes that killed 346 people.
Brazil’s top regulator said Gol Linhas Aereas Inteligentes SA, the only airline to operate the model in Brazil, is implementing the required measures to resume flights.
Canada is expected to lift the ban as well, but uncertainty remains about China, the largest market for the jet and the first to ban it in March 2019.
U.S. flights are due to resume on Dec. 29, while in Europe the formal ungrounding will take place from mid-January.
