USA: B-737 Max 9 aircraft ready to return to flight
The last word belongs to the American FAA
The management of the American Boeing Group, specialized in the aerospace and defense sectors, has apologized for the problems highlighted by the in-flight explosion of a plug door on board a B-737 MAX 9 aircraft of the American carrier Alaska Airlines. Following this, 171 aircraft of this model were grounded for safety checks. Now the company, like United Airlines, is ready to put the aircraft back into service.
"Our long-term goal is to improve quality so that we regain the trust of our customers, regulators and the flying public. Frankly, we have let them down and disappointed them. We are deeply sorry", wrote in a note to staff Stan Deal, CEO of Boeing's commercial aircraft unit.
In addition to Alaska Airlines and United Airlines, the Latin American airline Aeromexico and the Turkish Turkish Airlines are also ready to put their 737 MAX 9 aircraft back into service "in the next few days". The U.S. National Transportation Safety Board's (NTSB) investigation into the crash is expected next week. The final word on the aircraft's return to service lies with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
