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.

Gol said last week it could resume flying Boeing 737 MAX jets by year-end. “Those differences are not unusual, especially in a complex aircraft project like the 737 MAX,” he told Reuters. U.S. flights are due to resume on Dec. 29, while in Europe the formal ungrounding will take place from mid-January.

REUTERS/Lindsey WassonPARIS (Reuters) - European regulators gave draft approval to Boeing’s 737 MAX on Tuesday, paving the way for a formal flight clearance in January after an almost two-year ban caused by fatal crashes. The European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) outlined steps needed to put the grounded jets back into service, including updating software implicated in the crashes that killed a total of 346 people in 2018 and 2019. It also opened a 28-day comment period, which it said would lead to a formal ungrounding from mid-January, once public and industry feedback has been digested. How long it takes for flights to resume in Europe depends on pilot training and the amount of time airlines need to upgrade software and carry out other actions mandated by EASA.

PARIS (Reuters) - European regulators on Tuesday began the timetable for a return of the Boeing 737 MAX to Europe’s skies early next year after an almost two-year flight ban caused by fatal crashes. FILE PHOTO: Grounded Boeing 737 MAX aircraft are seen parked at Boeing facilities at Grant County International Airport in Moses Lake, Washington, U.S. November 17, 2020. How long it takes for flights to resume in Europe depends on pilot training and the amount of time airlines need to upgrade MCAS software and carry out other actions mandated by EASA. Some regulators have been waiting for EASA’s decision before lifting their own measures as the 20-month Boeing safety crisis tested confidence in U.S. aviation leadership. EASA represents the 27 European Union countries plus four other nations including Norway, which has 92 of the aircraft on order.

REUTERS/Lindsey WassonCAIRO (Reuters) - The United Arab Emirates civil aviation regulator said on Sunday it would announce a return schedule for the Boeing 737 MAX in a timely manner after the United States last week lifted a 20-month-old flight ban on the jet, the state news agency WAM reported. “The General Authority of Civil Aviation will issue a safety decision stipulating the technical requirements to ensure the safe return of service for the Boeing 737 ‘Max’ aircraft, and will announce the schedule for the return authorization in a timely manner,” WAM cited the regulator as saying. The regulator said it continued to work with the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) on the process. The UAE carrier flydubai is a major buyer of the narrow-body plane.

PARIS (Reuters) - Europe is set to lift its flight ban on the Boeing 737 MAX passenger jetliner in January after U.S. regulators last week ended a 20-month grounding triggered by two fatal crashes. FILE PHOTO: Grounded Boeing 737 MAX aircraft are seen parked at Grant County International Airport in Moses Lake, Washington, U.S. November 17, 2020. “All these studies tell us that the 737 MAX can return to service. “It is clear that there were a number of dysfunctions in (FAA) actions and their relations with Boeing,” Ky said. “What will change is the way in which we validate and certify Boeing aircraft, that’s clear, but will it have an impact on (certification) timings?

Hong Kong (CNN Business) Boeing is finally close to getting its 737 Max back into the air again in the United States. But the company still faces challenges in the critical aviation market of China, where its business woes go way beyond the troubled aircraft. The Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) has yet to say whether it will allow the 737 Max to fly in the country after the US Federal Aviation Administration gave the green light for the plane to carry passengers earlier this week. While the US government was an important hurdle for Boeing to clear, it will need approval from other aviation regulators before airlines can fly the plane between international destinations. The country was the first to ground the 737 Max last year after two of the jets crashed, claiming hundreds of lives.

Grounded Boeing 737 MAX aircraft are seen parked at Boeing facilities at Grant County International Airport in Moses Lake, Washington, U.S. November 17, 2020. In the past, regulators promptly followed the guidance of the FAA, credited for decades with pioneering aviation safety. Canada and Brazil, two aircraft-producing nations with heft in the industry, are expected to back the FAA’s decision within weeks. The crisis has boosted EASA’s influence as some agencies wait for its decision on the MAX rather than copy the FAA. “We have been working with EASA since the early days on the issue and their position will be taken into account,” a spokesman for Australia’s Civil Aviation Safety Authority said.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) chief Steve Dickson is “100% confident” in the safety of the Boeing 737 MAX but says the airplane maker has more to do as it works to improve its safety culture. FILE PHOTO: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Chief Steve Dickson brings a Boeing 737 MAX aircraft to a stop after an evaluation flight at Boeing Field in Seattle, Washington, U.S. September 30, 2020. “I feel 100% confident,” said Dickson, a former airline and military pilot, who took over as FAA administration in August 2019 and took the controls for a 737 MAX test flight in September. He noted the agency is adopting certification reforms and improvements in response to outside reviews of the 737 MAX certification. Dickson said the FAA will consider requiring that synthetic sensor in future 737 MAX versions, but has made no decisions.
