GURUGRAM, INDIAOn Nov. 23rd, Indian low-cost carrier SpiceJet announced that it returned its grounded Boeing 737 MAX jets to the service.

India's civil aviation regulatory body DGCA has finally approved commercial operations with 737 MAXs, which were grounded around the world after two fatal crashes in Ethiopia and Indonesia.

"We faced huge losses due to its non-operation. Three years ago, we inducted this aircraft, flew it for 6 months and no incidents occurred. Passengers were also happy with the aircraft," said SpiceJet CMD Ajay Singh.

The 737 MAXs have now been operational in the United States, Europe, Australia, and South America, and different parts of the world. The model already recorded 600,000 flight hours and carried out more than 250,000 commercial flights since it returned to the service.
