Boeing 737 Max Reintroduced for Domestic Flights

Posted in Announcements

American Airlines was the first to return the Boeing 737 Max for passenger flights in December of 2020. United, Alaskan, and Southwest Airlines also plan to reintroduce the planes for commercial flights in February and March of 2021. There has yet to be any announced reintroduction for international carriers.

The planes’ reintroduction follows a two year grounding period and changes made to the flight control systems. The Federal Aviation Administration approved the Max for commercial flights again at the end of 2020 after signing off on numerous safety-related changes to the planes. 

If a Georgetown traveler wishes to know if they will be flying on a 737 Max, please visit the airline website for plane details.
