UAE assessing return to service of Boeing 737 Max

WAM

The UAE's General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) has established a committee to assess the return of the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft.

The Return to Service Committee includes specialists in various fields who are working with their counterparts in the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).

In a statement, the GCAA said, "We will continue to work closely with FAA and EASA on the recertification process. The GCAA will issue a Safety Decision stipulating technical requirements to ensure a safe return to service of the MAX aircraft and we will also announce our certification timelines in due course."

The Boeing 737 MAX has been grounded worldwide for almost 20 months following two fatal air crashes.

However, last week, Boeing won approval from the FAA to fly the jet again.
