Qantas regulators said on the 26th that they will lift the ban on inbound and outbound flights for the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft for nearly two years, and Australia will therefore become the first country in the Asia-Pacific region to allow the aircraft to fly again. The aircraft was grounded after two crashes in March 2019.
“We… have confidence in the safety of this aircraft,” said Graeme Crawford, Acting Director of the Australian Civil Aviation Safety Agency, in a statement.
He also said that the agency has accepted the comprehensive necessary conditions specifically designed by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for the go-around of 737 MAX models.
Australia does not have any airlines using Boeing 737 MAX aircraft, but before the implementation of the ban, Fiji Airways and Singapore Airlines used this aircraft on flights to Australia.
The Singapore Airlines regulator did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Singapore Airlines said it will continue to work with regulators and accept its guidance on the operation of the 737 MAX.
A Fiji Airways spokesperson said the company is still working with other regulators in the region (including those in Fiji and New Zealand) before resuming the use of the 737 MAX.
Boeing said on the 26th that it is working with regulators and customers to return the 737 MAX to the market and serve public safety.
