Boeing has predicted a “mid-2020” return to service for the 737 Max, months later than anticipated. While emphasising safety remains the priority, Boeing said in a statement: “We are informing our customers and suppliers that we are currently estimating that the ungrounding of the 737 Max will begin during mid-2020. Following the second incident, global authorities banned commercial operation of the 737 Max. Boeing halted production of the aircraft earlier this month, with as many as 400 planes already awaiting delivery. Boeing added: “Returning the Max safely to service is our number one priority, and we are confident that will happen.
