“Boeing has tested over 800 test flights (on B737Max) and is working on improving the training process involving B737Max. We are working closely with regulators round the world to bring the aircraft back to service,” said Darren Hulst, director (product, forecast and current market), Boeing Commercial Aircraft.
The 737 Maxwas grounded by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) in March after aviation regulators worldwide did the same after two B737Max crashes — Ethiopian Airlines in 2019 and Lion Air in October 2018. In India, Jet Airways and SpiceJet ordered 737 Maxs. While Jet has now closed down, about 19 of its B737 Maxs are grounded. SpiceJet also recently said it may look at replacing its fleet with Airbus if problems with Boeings persist.
Boeing is expected to approach FAA for recertification of planes soon. “Boeing is providing regulators around the world, including DGCA, with detailed information on the 737Max,” said Salil Gupte, president, Boeing India. “Boeing is in continuous engagement with DGCA, FAA, European Union Aviation Safety Agency and other regulators.”
