The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has cleared the Boeing 737 Max to fly again, saying changes in software, design and training has made the plane safe to operate again, after two fatal crashes and 20 months of being grounded, Niraj Chokshi reported for the New York Times.

After 20 months on the ground, Boeing’s 737 Max will soon fly again, ending a tragic episode that cost 346 people their lives and did serious damage to the big US jet builder.

The company got clearance for the plane to return to American skies after convincing the FAA that changes in design, software and crew training would eliminate the flaws that caused fatal crashes in 2018 and 2019.

One year after a second 737 Max jet went down, the victims’ families press on in memory of their loved ones. “They were an extraordinary group of people.”
