Europe’s avator regulator has declared Boeing’s 737 Max aircraft safe to fly after it crashed in March 2019 following two accidents that left 346 people dead.
Patrick Ky, executive director of the European Union Aviation Safety Agency, told Bloomberg on Friday that he was pleased with Boeing’s changes to the aircraft, adding that the aircraft could return to regional air before the end of 2020.
The announcement came though Boeing will still implement a software upgrade requested by its agency. It may be two years before it is ready.
After more than half a year without orders, Boeing announced that it had sold two 737 Max planes to Polish charter airline Enter Air in August.
Boeing and the European Union Aviation Safety Agency did not immediately respond to a request to CNBC for comment.
