Jan 22 (Reuters) - Air Canada said on Wednesday it has removed Boeing’s 737 MAX from its flight schedule until June 30, 2020, a day after the U.S. planemaker warned the grounded jet would not win regulatory approval until mid-year.
The Canadian airline, which has 24 MAX aircraft in its fleet, said the decision was based on operational considerations after Boeing revealed that MAX’s return to service would be further delayed.
Air Canada, the country’s biggest carrier, had previously pulled the MAX from its schedule until Feb. 14, 2020. (Reporting by Sanjana Shivdas in Bengaluru; Editing by Vinay Dwivedi)
