American Airlines plans to return the Boeing 737 Max to service by the end of the year
- Airline will operate a daily 737 Max flight between Miami and New York from December 29 to January 4
American Airlines plans to return Boeing 737 Max aircraft to service for passenger flights later this year, pending certification of the aircraft by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), it said on Sunday.
The airline said it will operate a daily 737 Max flight between Miami and New York from December 29 to January 4, with flights available for booking beginning October 24.
“We remain in contact with the FAA and Boeing regarding the certification process and will continue to update our plans based on when the aircraft is certified,” the company said in a statement.
The Boeing 737 MAX has been grounded since March 2019 after two fatal crashes that killed 346 people, but the FAA is expected to lift its grounding order sometime in November.
American Airlines said it will let customers know they are flying a 737 MAX.
