After the ungrounding of the model, AeroMᴇxɪᴄᴏ has planned its first Boeing 737 MAX flights for December 21, 2020, making it the second airline in the world to fly the model.
According to PaxEx.aero, the airline initially intends to use the Boeing 737 MAX for four flights on December 21, 2020. From its hub at Mᴇxɪᴄᴏ City International Airport (MEX), it will fly the particular aircraft type. AeroMᴇxɪᴄᴏ will gradually increase the volume of daily flights. More 737 MAX aircraft are expected to start returning to AeroMᴇxɪᴄᴏ’s fleet on December 24, 2020.
On December 3, 2020, the Federal Civil Aviation Agency of Mᴇxɪᴄᴏ ungrounded the Boeing 737 MAX. On that day, the agency released an Airworthiness Directive (AD) outlining the prerequisites for air operators to fly the specific type of aircraft.
According to the explanation of the AD, “These actions do not permit the 737 MAX to instantly return to the skies, as it must pass the reviews of pilot training programs for each airline that flies the MAX and the standards described in this Airworthiness Directive issued by the AFAC.”
On November 18, 2020, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) of the United States released its AD allowing the Boeing 737 MAX to resume flight. After being grounded since March 2019 for 20 months, the all-clear was issued. The first airline to use the narrow-body plane for commercial operations was the Bʀᴀᴢɪʟian low-cost airline GOL Linhas Aereas, which launched its inaugural flight using the model on December 9, 2020.
American Airlines (A1G) (AAL), which had announced plans to use the type on flights between Miami International Airport (MIA) and Nᴇᴡ Yᴏʀᴋ s LaGuardia (LGA) airport on December 29, 2020, was anticipated to be the second airline to use the 737 MAX.
Six 737 MAX 8 aircraft altogether, plus four that have been ᴍᴀɴufactured but haven’t yet been delivered, are in the fleet of AeroMᴇxɪᴄᴏ. Four 737 MAX-9 narrow-body aircraft are still waiting to be delivered to the airline. The Mexican airline placed orders for a total of 60 737 MAX aircraft, according to data from Boeing’s Orders and Deliveries service.
