DGCA had banned Boeing 737 MAX operations in India since March 2019 after two fatal accidents.
Aircraft manufacturer Boeing has been modifying the 737 MAX plane since March 2019 so that various countries' regulators, including the DGCA, permit its passenger flight operations again.
Issuing an order today, the DGCA said that the operation of Boeing 737 MAX planes are permitted "only upon satisfaction of applicable requirements for return to service".
SpiceJet, as per reports, has over 100 737 MAX planes on order. The Gurugram-based airline said it has entered into a "settlement" with a lessor of Boeing 737 Max planes -- Avolon.
"SpiceJet has entered into a settlement with Avolon, a major lessor of Max aircraft, paving the way for the airline's 737 MAX aircraft to start to return to service," the low-cost carrier said in the statement.
In a statement, the airline said it hopes to see these MAX aircraft flying again soon. SpiceJet is the only airline in the country to fly the 737 MAX aircraft.
