Singapore has lifted restrictions on Boeing Co.'s 737 MAX in the country, the Civil Aviation of Authority of Singapore said.

Singapore, like other countries around the world, had grounded the planes in March 2019 following fatal crashes in Ethiopia and Indonesia.

The decision to remove the restrictions was made after completing a technical assessment, which included an evaluation of design changes to the aircraft made by Boeing, the Singapore authority said Monday.

CAAS said it had also reviewed the operational data of flights of the aircraft, which had resumed service over the past nine months, and found no notable safety issues.
