Aviation Regulator Met Boeing About 737 MAX’s Return to China

Aviation officials in China said on Tuesday they held a meeting with Boeing last week about the return of the 737 MAX to China, a day before the airline’s officials announced they would begin marketing more jets to Chinese customers.

The jet has not flown commercially in China since March 2019, when it was grounded after two crashes. The purpose of the meeting was to review flight training programs of this type, the judge said on social media.

CAAC said it will issue a revised document once the issues raised at the meeting are resolved.

The day after the Sept. 14 meeting, Boeing officials said the plane maker would begin reselling 737 MAX jets destined for Chinese customers because it could not wait too long while the U.S.-China political conflict continued.

Boeing CEO Dave Calhoun said the resumption of cargo in China is important to Boeing’s future, but the outlook for aircraft sales in China in the near future … one or two years “is not good.

A Boeing spokesman on Tuesday declined to comment on the meeting with the CAAC, saying the company continues to work with customers and regulators including China to safely return the 737 MAX to service worldwide.

The plane maker said in July that it has 290 undisclosed 737 MAX planes and about half are destined for Chinese customers.
