“If we are a victims’ association bringing together dozens of families bereaved by the crash of flight ET302, it is first of all as European citizens that we welcome the decision of the Transport Committee to hear Mr. Patrick Ky.
We want to believe in a Europe that protects its citizens”.Excerpt from the association’s press release of 01/22/21
On December 22, 2020, the association Flight ET302 – Solidarity & Justice sent a letter of comment in response to the publication of the EASA Airworthiness Directive, a prerequisite for lifting the flight ban on the Boeing 737 MAX in Europe, as part of a public consultation (Read here). This letter has remained unanswered.
The families and loved ones of the victims of ET302 would not want to see the Boeing 737 MAX return to service in Europe without a demonstration of the safety of this aircraft model.
It is in this will to obtain answers that on January 10, 2021, the association Flight ET302 – Solidarity & Justice, by an email addressed to Karima Delli, President of the European Parliament’s Committee on Transport and Tourism, requested the hearing of Patrick Ky, Executive Director of EASA before this committee.
Mr. Ky having announced on January 19, 2021, that the recertification of the 737 MAX would take place in the last week of January (Read more), Mrs. Delli agreed to the association’s request by inviting Mr. Ky to come and audition in front of the commission on Monday, January 25. He will thus be able to answer the questions and concerns of the parliamentarians regarding the recertification of the Boeing 737 MAX.
