The European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has said "certain" Boeing 737 MAX planes, which were globally grounded after two fatal crashes involving the model that took place within months, was now safe to fly, the media reported. The 737 MAX has been globally grounded since March 2019 after the crashes of the Lion Air Flight 610 (October 2018) and Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 (March 2019) claimed a total of 346 lives. Since the Ethiopian crash, the EASA has been carrying out a root-and-branch review of the 737 MAX's design, independently from a similar process undertaken by the US regulator, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Speaking to the BBC on Sunday, EASA Executive Director Patrick Ky said his organisation had "left no stone unturned" in its review of the aircraft and its analysis of design changes made by the manufacturer.
