Saudi Arabia’s civil aviation authority has approved the return of Boeing 737 MAX to service in its airspace, the Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported late Sunday.
In a statement carried by SPA, the General Authority of Civil Aviation said that the Boeing 737 MAX plane will be allowed to return to service from and to Saudi Arabia, after completing the necessary review, taking necessary measures and completing all necessary tests by the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration, the European Aviation Safety Agency and other civil aviation authorities around the world.
The authority stated that national carriers do not operate the MAX model, but several foreign airlines operate flights to and from Saudi airports, and several flights cross their airspace with the same model.
It confirmed that the lifting of the temporary suspension came after close coordination with the international civil aviation community regarding changes, licensing, and training to ensure the highest level of safety.
The authority has published a Navigational Notice (NOTAM) allowing the MAX to return to service, and it has also been published in the Saudi Aviation Information Guide in addition to a directive notice (AC), who will also issue a Type Acceptance Certificate (TCA) when the aircraft is registered for the first time in the National Aircraft Registry.
