United Update on 737 MAX operations

March 15, 2019 Aviation No Comments Email Email

Earlier today, the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) mandated the grounding of all 737 MAX aircraft operated by U.S. airlines and within U.S. airspace. Nothing is more important to us than the safety of our customers and employees, and we will comply with the FAA’s order and ground our 14 737 MAX 9 aircraft, effective immediately.

We have been in close contact with investigators as well as Boeing to share data and fully cooperate with regulatory authorities, and will remain aligned with authorities as their investigation continues.

To minimize any potential impact to customers, we have been working diligently on contingency plans to prepare our fleet in the event of a government mandate.

Our MAX aircraft account for roughly 40 flights a day, and through a combination of repositioning other aircraft types and rebooking customers, we do not anticipate a significant operational impact as a result of this order. We will continue to work with our customers to help minimize any travel disruptions, and will proactively contact any customer whose travel may be impacted by this order.
