The plane was Clean to carry passengers
Again the U.S. On November 18 by the Federal Aviation Administration. Despite authorities in Europe and Canada, Brazil is the only other country whose aviation regulator has cleared the plane for passengers to fly. Closer to doing so
, Brazil’s largest domestic airline, said it would use the aircraft on routes to and from the country’s largest city, Sઓo Paulo, although it did not disclose a specific route for the first flights.
It said passengers would be informed that their flight would now be flown on the 7 Max7 Max, and any passengers who did not wish to fly in the plane would have their ticket converted into a flight using other devices.

The aircraft in its fleet of 127 jets, it makes a major customer for the aircraft manufacturer. Its fleet consists of seven aircraft of its 737 Max. He expects all seven to return by the end of December. It also has orders for 95 other 737 Max aircraft, and is scheduled to take delivery between 2022 and 2032.

, United (UAL)
And Southwest (L.U.V.)
, The aircraft has been slow to re-enter service.
The American will be the first of three to use the plane on intermediate flights Miami and New York on December 29th
. United said last month that it expects to start flying in the first three months of 2021. In the Southwest, which has as many as 34 other jets – more than any other airport – passengers are not expected to fly at 737 Max by spring 2021.
The GLA said it confidently believes the changes made to the aircraft during its 20-month grounding make its flight safer. The safety mechanism designed to prevent the plane from taking off too fast, stalling, was responsible for pushing under the noses of both fatal flights, causing the crash. The aircraft now has additional sensors to protect against false readings that will trigger that safety mechanism.
“We are delighted that the Boeing 737 Max is back on our network,” said Paulo Kakinoff, CEO of GOL. “The Max is one of the most efficient aircraft in aviation history and the only one to go through a complete recovery process that guarantees the highest level of safety and reliability. We reaffirm our confidence in Boeing.”
GOL also said it has received additional training for its 1,140 pilots, who will be able to fly the maximum on how to handle the new safety systems in the aircraft.
“We are delighted to partner with GOL in achieving this important goal and we look forward to seeing what remains to be done in our partnership,” said Landon Lumis, Boeing’s Managing Director in Brazil.
