BEIJING: China's aviation regulator will not yet allow Boeing's troubled 737 MAX jet to fly in the company's biggest market owing to lingering safety concerns, despite the US lifting a ban on commercial flights. Boeing's best-selling aircraft was grounded worldwide early last year following two crashes that killed 346 passengers.
It has since faced lengthy tests and approval processes with aviation regulators worldwide. But the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) said on Friday that there was "no set timetable" for the resumption of flights, according to state broadcaster CCTV, dealing a blow to the plane-making giant. China was the first to suspend flights of the aircraft.
