FAA orders inspection of 2,600 Boeing 737 airplanes

NEW DELHI: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has mandated inspections of 2,600 Boeing 737 airplanes, citing potential failures in passenger oxygen masks. This directive affects both 737 MAX and NG models.
The FAA’s decision follows multiple reports of oxygen generators within passenger service units shifting out of position. Such shifts could result in the failure to provide supplemental oxygen during a depressurization event.
“Boeing on June 17 issued a bulletin to airlines calling for visual inspections,” the FAA stated.
These new inspections aim to mitigate risks and ensure passenger safety.
