Czech airline group Smartwings returns Boeing 737 MAX to service

(Reuters) – Czech airline group Smartwings said on Thursday it had returned Boeing’s 737 MAX 8 to service after a nearly two-year absence.

European regulators in January lifted a 22-month ban on flights of the 737 MAX airplane after a design and pilot training overhaul in the wake of crashes that had killed 346 people.

Smartwings has seven of the planes in its fleet and returned the first to service on a regular flight from Prague to Malaga. It aims to have the other six planes in operation by the summer season, it said.
