India Grants Permission To Restart Boeing 737 Max Ops


Breaking News LIVE, 26 August, 2021: India has granted safety permission for restart of Boeing 737 Max operations in the country. Aviation regulator DGCA had suspended the aircraft’s operations in March 2019 after two fatal crashes. “This rescission enables operation of Boeing Company Model 737-8 and Boeing Company Model 737-9 airplanes only upon satisfaction of applicable requirements for return to service,” the DGCA said in its order.

At present, only SpiceJet has 737 Max in their fleet. It has 13 aircraft of this type. After re-certification, the airline will be able to get 30 or more aircraft for operations. Additionally, the 737Maxs will allow the airline to retire some old fuel guzzlers, leading to higher saving margins. SpiceJet had placed an order for 225 Maxs in 2017, while it has a firm order of more than 150 of these aircraft.

The Ministry of Home Affairs on Thursday appointed former Delhi BJP chief Satish Upadhyay as the Vice Chairperson of the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) along with three others members who have been nominated as. Besides, three others – Kuljeet Singh Chahal, Vishakha Sailani and Girish Sachdeva, have been nominated members of the municipal council.

At least 61,10,43,573 vaccine doses have been administered so farn with nearly 68 lakh (67,87,305) vaccine doses given yesterday on the 223rd day of the vaccination drive.
