MOSCOW (Pakistan Point News / Sputnik - 17th October, 2019) Air Canada said it had extended its decision to ground its Boeing 737 MAX planes after two fatal crashes involving the jet until February 14, 2020.
"Given the uncertainty about the timing of regulatory approvals for the return to service of the Boeing 737 MAX, we are removing the Boeing 737 MAX from our schedule to February 14, 2020 and will continue to update plans as required," the company said in a statement on Wednesday.
Earlier in October, American Airlines said its Boeing 737 Max jet will resume commercial service in mid-January.
Air Canada, alongside dozens of other airlines from across the world, suspended the flights of Boeing 737 MAX after the two deadly accidents involving the planes that happened in less than six months. The Canadian company, which owns 24 such jets, has previously grounded them until further notice.
