BOE­ING 737 MAX’S EUROPE FLIGHT TEST STILL ON HOLD

National Post (National Edition) - - FINANCIAL POST -

Travel re­stric­tions brought on by the COVID-19 pan­demic con­tinue to slow the re­cer­ti­fi­ca­tion process for Boe­ing Co.’s 737 Max in Europe, even after U.S. avi­a­tion reg­u­la­tors moved a step closer to al­low­ing the grounded jet to fly again. The Euro­pean Union Avi­a­tion Safety Agency said it’s still work­ing with Boe­ing and the U.S. Fed­eral Avi­a­tion Ad­min­is­tra­tion to find a so­lu­tion that would al­low it to con­duct its own test flights for the jet. None of the flights, a pre­req­ui­site for the 737 Max’s return to ser­vice in Europe, has been sched­uled. On Mon­day, the FAA asked for pub­lic com­ment on pro­posed changes it will re­quire for re­cer­ti­fi­ca­tion of the 737 Max, which was grounded after two crashes killed 346 peo­ple. Boe­ing has said it ex­pects to re­sume de­liv­er­ies of the nar­row-body plane this year.
