Flydubai Preparing For Boeing 737 MAX To Rejoin Its Fleet, Dubai Government Says

United Arab Emirates-based carrier Flydubai is preparing for the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft to rejoin its fleet, the Dubai government's media office has said on Twitter.

The UAE civil aviation authority announced on Wednesday February 17 that it was lifting the safety ban on the aircraft, which was grounded globally in March of 2019 after two fatal crashes in five months killed 346 people.

Flydubai is a major buyer of the jet.

Lifting Of US And European Bans

The United States lifted its ban in November. The European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) lifted its ban last month.
