European Aviation Safety Agency has said that Boeing 737 Max aircraft could be able to return back into service in Europe before the end of 2020.

Europe's regulator said that he was satisfied with the changes made on the troubled Boeing 737 MAX aircraft. Although, the EASA has declared it safe, some of the additional changes asked by the agency won't be ready for the next two years.

Bloomberg reported that the EASA is reportedly performing final document reviews ahead of a draft airworthiness directive expected by the agency to be issued in November. EASA conducted test flights in September.

Patrick Ky, executive director of the European Union Aviation Safety Agency also said that the airworthiness directive would be followed by four weeks of public comments.
