BEIJING, CHINA — A Boeing 737 MAX flight by the Mongolian carrier MIAT landed at China's Guangzhou International Airport today, marking it to be the first commercial flight by Boeing's latest generation single-aisle jet to China since the country grounded the plane in March 2019 after two deadly crashes.

Chinese operators have not returned the 737 MAX to commercial service, and Boeing last month said it would begin to find new customers for some of the planes intended for Chinese carriers. The 737 MAX has returned to commercial service in almost every market globally, with the exceptions of China and Russia, which is now sanctioned over its invasion of Ukraine.

Flight OM235 from the Mongolian capital Ulaanbaatar landed in Guangzhou on Monday morning.

Boeing declined to comment on the MIAT flight, saying it continued to work with global regulators and customers on the safe return of the MAX, which was grounded after two fatal crashes.
