According to the Tuoi Tre newspaper, the Vietnamese Ministry of Transport approved the Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam (CAAV) proposal based on safe post-recertification MAX operations from other countries.

The U.S. House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee released a 245-page report on what caused the crashed the crash in September 2020.

The US lifted its ban on the aircraft in November 2020 after Boeing announced it fixed its Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS) in 737 MAX planes.
