Alaska Airlines’ Boeing 737 Max 9 returns to the skies after three-week grounding

The first Boeing 737 Max 9 flight since the mid-air blowout incident, Alaska Flight 1146, takes off from Seattle to San Diego.

After a three-week hiatus due to a mid-air door plug blowout incident, Alaska Airlines restarted its Boeing 737 Max 9 flights on Friday.

The airline conducted rigorous inspections on its fleet of 65 Max 9 planes, following the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) instructions.

The first Max 9 flight since the grounding, Alaska Flight 1146, left Seattle-Tacoma International Airport for San Diego on Friday afternoon. Two more flights were scheduled to depart later that day from Las Vegas to Portland, Oregon, and from Seattle to Ontario, Canada.
