On the 1st of February, Ethiopian Airlines completed a passenger flight on B737 MAX. It was the first time the aircraft of this operator took to the skies since the B737 MAX grounding that lasted for two years.
While airborne, acting Chief Executive Officer Esayas Woldemariam told reporters that commercial flights would resume after the demonstration.
“We made sure everything is in order, now we are doing…a demo flight so to speak. It is after this that we are availing it to commercial aviation,” said Esayas.
Ethiopian Airlines is among the last few carriers to resume MAX flights. China and Russia are the only countries left to authorize passenger flights on MAX jets.
