Boeing reports that approximately 90% of its China 737 MAX fleet has resumed commercial operations. The US aircraft manufacturer made this announcement on its official WeChat account on

Wednesday, June 28th.

Sherry Carbary, President of Boeing China, stated in the article that some of the planes have been assigned to regional international routes. This development marks a significant milestone in the recovery of the Boeing 737 MAX in China.

Following an air crash involving a 737 MAX operated by Ethiopian Airlines in March 2019, which was the second deadly accident of its kind within five months, China grounded its entire fleet of Boeing 737 MAX aircraft. At that time, Chinese carriers had a total of 96 jets in service.

Carbary mentioned that by the end of June, approximately 90% of China's 737 MAX fleet had resumed commercial operations. These aircraft have been deployed on regional international routes connecting domestic cities to various destinations in Central Asia and Southeast Asia.

China Southern Airlines, a state-owned carrier, was the first airline in the country to resume flying the 737 MAX in January, after a grounding period of nearly four years. Since then, Chinese airlines have gradually reintroduced the model into their operations. In April, Boeing estimated that half of China's MAX fleet was back in service.
