Ethiopian Airlines will be the last airline to fly with the Boeing 737 Max again
Ethiopian Airlines will be the last airline to fly with the Boeing 737 Max againDuring the annual IATA conference in Seoul, Zuid-Korea the CEO has announced that they will be the last airline to start flying with the Boeing 737 Max again. First, they want to see the aircraft being flown by other airlines for some time and to see the planes being approved by the authorities of other countries worldwide. The CEO, however, also wanted to acknowledge that, for a long time, the airline was a Boeing-only customer. They still value their partnership with Boeing.
Earlier accidentsEarlier this year an Ethiopian Airlines flight crashed, killing many. It concerned a Boeing 737 Max and soon after all Boeing 737 Max’s were grounded worldwide. That is still the case as Boeing is continuously working on updating the aircrafts. The damage for Boeing will most probably be millions of dollars.
When will the Boeing 737 Max be back in the air?At this point in time it is generally assumed that the Boeing 737 Max will be back in the air before the end of the year. However, the re-introduction of the aircraft has been delayed a number of times already, as the updates could not yet take place. Altogether, it is therefore difficult to pinpoint an exact date for the time being. That the Boeing 737 Max will return to the sky is however a fact, and perhaps just a few months later, Ethiopian Airlines will also fly with the aircrafts again.
