ABU DHABI 23 November 2020: The General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) has established a Return to Service Committee on Boeing 737 Max that includes specialists from the required areas who are working with their counterparts in the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).

In a statement Sunday, GCAA said, “We will continue to work closely with FAA and EASA on the recertification process. The GCAA will issue a Safety Decision stipulating technical requirements to ensure a safe return to service of the MAX aircraft and we will also announce our certification timelines in due course.”

After a Ethiopian crash in March 2019 which claimed 171 lives, Flydubai and other airlines withdrew Boeing 737-Max from service on oeders from the GCAA.
