ANAC Brazil follows FAA and lifts grounding of 737 MAX
26 November 2020

The Brazilian National Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC) decided to unground the Boeing 737 MAX on November 25, 2020.
The decision followed long independent work to reauthorize the operation of the aircraft in Brazil. ANAC withdrew the Emergency Airworthiness Directive that had restricted the operation of the 737 MAX in Brazil after agreeing with theFAA evaluation for all necessary technical and regulatory elements that were carried out to address the safety issues. The FAA Directive of Airworthiness, released on November 20, was adopted by ANAC and has automatic force in Brazil.
GOL Linhas Aéreas, the only 737 MAX operator in Brazil, will now implement, under supervision, the necessary requirements to return the operations of their Boeing 737-8 MAX aircraft.
