WestJet Airlines operated the first commercial Boeing 737 MAX flight in Canada Thursday since the aircraft was grounded in 2019 following two deadly crashes.
The FAA as well as Boeing have come under intense scrutiny for the original approval and design process of the aircraft, which failed to disclose and address what would turn out to be fatal flaws in the plane.
The U.S. authorized the planes for commercial service in November 2020, prompting families of the victims to plead with authorities to revoke the decision.
The EASA, Europe’s civil aviation authority, is also expected to clear the aircraft next week.
