The Boeing 737 MAX made its first commercial flight to China in nearly four years when it landed in Guangzhou while being flown by MIAT Mongolian Airlines. In March 2019, the kind was grounded in China.
On October 10, 2022, a Boeing 737 MAX 8 with the registration EI-MNG departed for China on the OM235 trip. Flightradar24.com’s flight history shows that the aircraft took off from Chinggis Khaan International Airport in Mongolia at 8:47 PM (UTC) and landed at Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport in China at about 12:15 AM (CAN).
China’s Boeing 737 MAX recertification
After two fatal crashes in Ethiopia and Indonesia resulted in 346 fatalities in 2018 and 2019, China was the first nation to halt the MAX aircraft. The nation is one of the final significant nations to still have not given the Boeing 737 MAX aeroplane commercial usage approval.
The Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) scheduled a meeting with Boeing in Zhoushan in September 2022 to talk about the MAX’s return.
The regulatory agency did not specify a time for the plane to be returned to Chinese skies, even though it studied the manufacturer’s revisions and assessed a number of other enhancements.
Boeing has a backlog of about 290 unfinished MAX aircraft as of July 2022, with half of them intended for Chinese airlines.
On September 15, 2022, however, Boeing stated that it had plans to remarket some 737 MAX aircraft that had been produced for Chinese customers but were not to be delivered because the country’s aviation regulator had not given the aircraft clearance to fly.
