Europe’s aviation authority has declared BoeingThe 737 Max aircraft is safe to fly after being killed in two accidents that left 346 dead in March 2019.
Patrick Ky, Executive Director of the European Union Aviation Safety Agency, said Bloomberg Friday that he is happy with the changes Boeing has made to the plane and that the plane could return to the region’s skies before the end of 2020.
The announcement comes even though Boeing does not yet have to perform a software upgrade requested by its agency. It could take two years to finish.
