(PM)- According to a Reuters Report, U.S. Federal Aviation Administration told members of the United Nations’ aviation agency that they expect to unground Boeing 737 MAX jets in the U.S. as early as late June.
The report states that two FAA officials briefed members of the International Civil Aviation Organization’s governing council in Montreal on Thursday.
In March, the FAA grounded all Boeing 737 MAX flights after two crashes involving the jets occurred over a five-month span, killing 346 people. Multiple airlines canceled flights throughout the summer involving the jets, including United Airlines, Southwest, Air Canada, China Southern, American Airlines, and others.
Earlier today, FAA’s acting administrator, Daniel Elwell, said that airlines “don’t need to make any changes to their plans,” when asked if airlines needed a plan if the jets aren’t flying by this fall or later.
After this report, the Boeing stock rose over 4.5 points or 1.3 percent.
