The United States Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said in a statement that it had transparent and collaborative relations with other civil aviation authorities when they conducted a 737 MAX safety review.

On the other hand, the European Union said that it also communicate with Boeing on flight security tests.

“We at this stage do not have specific concerns resulting from that assessment which means that we cannot approve coordinated returns to service. We continue to make contact with the FAA and Boeing”, said a spokesman for the European Union Aviation Security Agency (EASA) via email.

FAA administrator Steve Dickson previously said that the agency would need about one month after, the scheduled certification test flight before the aircraft could be flown back.

The FAA reiterated on Tuesday that they did not have a definite date for completing the review.

For info, Boeing has provided a $50 million grant, which was announced on September 23.

“Each victim’s family will receive US $144,500. Of the two deadly accidents, Boeing has paid three of the five claims filed to date”, the fund’s co-administrator, Camille Biros, told Reuters.
