Canada, EU reviewing certification approval of Boeing 737 MAX after FAA probe

Wednesday 17:16 GMT

Canada and the European Union say they are re-examining the approval it gave Boeing 737 MAX jets, following reports of a U.S. investigation into the Federal Aviation Administration certification of the aircraft.

Canada urged to review aircraft certification agreement with U.S. following Boeing 737 MAX 8 crashes. Canada accepted the FAA’s certification of the MAX in June 2017 under a bilateral agreement where such approvals by the U.S. are almost always accepted by Canada and vice versa.

US federal prosecutors and regulators have opened an inquiry into the development of Boeing 737 Max airplanes following two fatal crashes, a move that comes as scrutiny is mounting over Boeing and the US’s top aviation regulator’s role in certifying the aircraft.

The investigation comes days after the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) grounded 737 Max planes indefinitely following the Ethiopian Airlines disaster earlier this month, which came less than five months after a Lion Air 737 Max crashed in Indonesia, killing everyone onboard.

Boeing's Dennis Muilenburg, who is the chairman, president and chief executive of the company, said in an open letter: "Soon we'll release a software update and related pilot training for the 737 Max that will address concerns discovered in the aftermath of the Lion Air Flight 610 accident." He said the company had been working in "full co-operation" with the relevant authorities and regulators.

The airline had been expecting delivery of six new planes in March and April, but has been substituting different aircraft on the 737 Max routes.
