The European agency, which published a draft directive on airworthiness in November, has made adjustments in presentation largely after public consultations, said Executive Director Patrick Ky at a media briefing, Reuters reported.

“We expect to publish it next week, which means that MAX will be allowed to fly again,” Ky said. A separate certification of the MAX-200 variant will likely follow in “the next few weeks,” allowing flights to resume before the summer, he added.
