Flydubai plans to begin flying its Boeing 737 Max aircraft from April 8, marking another step toward the aircraft’s global return to service.
The Dubai-based airline has “met and exceeded the stringent requirements” set by regulators in the United States, Europe and the United Arab Emirates, the company said in a statement Sunday.
“Passengers will be notified in advance of travel if their itinerary now includes a flight that is scheduled to be operated by a MAX,” the airline said.
Flydubai stopped operating 14 Max aircraft in March 2019, when the model was grounded worldwide following two fatal crashes.
The low-cost carrier has ordered 251 Max aircraft as it pursues aggressive regional expansion.
