Boeing 737 MAX returns to service in India after 2.5 years of grounding. The DGCA regulator has rescinded its grounding of the Boeing 737 MAX order, first published on March 13th, 2019.

Like other aviation authorities, India requests the changes to be completed on individual aircraft before getting back to service. Instead of creating its own set of rules, India is using EASA’s list, issued in February.

SpiceJet is currently the only Indian Boeing 737 MAX operator, but it will not be the only airline flying the MAX in Indian airspace. The country already relaxed its ban back in April for foreign airlines.

According to data from ch-aviation.com, 34 carriers are now operating the type, with 344 of the world’s Boeing 737 MAX aircraft currently listed as active. A further 209 aircraft are listed as inactive, belonging to 41 carriers. 4070 jets are on order, with such orders attributed to 74 carriers.

At the moment, 175 out of 195 countries have approved the aircraft to fly again.
