CHICAGOUnited Airlines is planning to bring the Boeing 737 MAX back into service from Feb 11 with scheduled flights from its Denver and Houston hubs.

The airline will operate its 737 MAXs along with the other aircraft types on the same routes in case passengers do not prefer 737 MAX due to ongoing skepticism about the safety of the recently re-certified jet.


The plane had been grounded for 20 months following two fatal crashes.


“Nothing is more important to United than the safety of our customers and employees, so United’s Max fleet won’t return to service until we have completed more than 1,000 hours of work on every aircraft, including FAA-mandated changes to the flight software, additional pilot training, multiple test flights, and meticulous technical analysis to ensure the planes are ready to fly,” 


the airline says.


“We will be fully transparent with our customers and will communicate in advance when they are booked to fly on a Max aircraft.”
