The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has certified the Boeing 737 Max 8 for commercial service.

To earn certification for the 737 Max 8, Boeing undertook a comprehensive test program that began just over one year ago with four airplanes, plus ground and laboratory testing.

Following a rigorous certification process, the FAA granted Boeing an Amended Type Certificate for the 737 Max 8, verifying the design complies with required aviation regulations and is safe and reliable.
