The Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam has proposed to the Ministry of Transport to allow Boeing B737 Max aircraft to operate transitting through the territory of Vietnam. The above recommendation is made on the basis of the corrective work of Boeing, the assessment of global major aviation authorities (FAA, EASA, TCCA, ANAC, ...), and the performance indicators of Boeing B737 Max's machine.
According to updates from the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and Boeing, the ban on B737 Max aircraft has been lifted in most countries around the world, except for China, Russia, Australia, Southeast Asia nations. In addition, the Boeing company also completed a series of updates, including improving additional parallel surveillance algorithm between two flight control computers to detect early system error warning signals; completing additional pilot warning system if the aircraft's angle of attack sensor fails while operating; updating computer system for adjusting limits, and activating the system of horizontal balance adjustment...

Emphasizing its will to continue to monitor and update information from global aviation authorities after the above recommendation gets approved, CAA says it will report to the Ministry of Transport for consultation before allowing passing rights and issuing aircraft accreditation for Boeing B737 Max, which will grant aircraft of this type the rights to be imported into Vietnam.
Currently, Boeing and the FAA are developing test flight plans that demonstrate compliance with safety regulations and flight eligibility standards so that the remaining countries will allow lifting their flight bans.

Boeing recorded a pre-tax expense of $ 5.6 billion in the second quarter of 2019. In July, the company estimated that the total damage from the ban on the B737 Max series fell to more than 8 billion USD.
It is known that since the Boeing B737 Max is back in operation, the Boeing aircraft manufacturer has weekly updated the reliability and safety figures related to all Boeing B737 Max aircraft operating in the world.
Previously, Boeing was faced with several investigations relating to the design of the B737 Max aircraft after two crashes of Lion Air (Indonesia) in October 2018 and Ethiopian Airlines in March 2019, causing a total of 346 people killed in accidents. The B737 MAX series, Boeing's most expensive aircraft, have been banned worldwide after those catastrophic crashes. Preliminary investigations of both crashes indicate that errors in the Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS) specially designed for the B737 Max series could be the cause of the crashes.
