Icelandair returns its two Boeing 737 MAXs to service

Icelandair made this announcement:

Two Boeing 737 MAX aircraft return to service in Icelandair’s flight schedule in March 2021.

After an extensive process with worldwide participation, the North American and European aviation authorities have now recertified the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft.

Taking 20 months, the recertification process involved expert engineers, scientists, researchers, mechanics and pilots from various countries worldwide, including independent representatives from NASA and the US Air Force.

After the completion of the most thorough inspection process in aviation history, the result is certification from the major authorities, including:

  • The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in the USA
  • Transport Canada (TC) in Canada
  • The European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) in Europe, of which Iceland is a member
