Brazilian carrier Gol Linhas Aereas Inteligentes SA, which was the first to restart services with the Max in December, had the highest utilization with its eight aircraft flying almost 11 hours a day, Cirium said in a statement.

Regulators around the world have followed the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration in clearing the Max to fly again after two fatal crashes led to its grounding in March 2019.
