Boeing 737 MAX to fly again by December - Bloomberg

June 12 (Reuters) - Boeing Co's troubled 737 MAX aircraft, which has been grounded since March following two fatal crashes in five months, will be back in the air by December, Bloomberg reported here on Wednesday, citing a top Federal Aviation Administration safety official.

While the FAA is "under a lot of pressure", the MAX will be returned to service "when we believe it will be safe," Bloomberg reported, quoting Ali Bahrami, FAA's associate administrator for aviation safety.

Boeing did not immediately respond to a request for comment. (Reporting by Rachit Vats in Bengaluru Editing by Saumyadeb Chakrabarty)
