Following recertification of the 737 MAX by the FAA, airlines in the US plan to resume flight operations.
American Airlines said on Wednesday it would make good on its plan to return Boeing’s 737 MAX jets to passenger flights by the end of 2020.
The No.1 U.S. airline said it will begin with non-commercial flights in early December before resuming passenger flights later in the month.
The airline said it will operate two flights a day, or one round-trip between Miami and New York from Dec. 29 to Jan. 4.
A number of airlines may attempt to downplay the “MAX” branding on their fleets, although American Airlines disputes that they are attempting to do so. Instead, the airline reiterated that information regarding the type of aircraft will be made available to passengers upon booking.
“If they don’t want to travel on a MAX, they won’t have to,” a representative for the airline told Fox News on Tuesday, adding that there will be “flexibility in place for customers who do not want to travel on 737 MAX.”
