WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Boeing (NYSE:) Co on Wednesday won approval from U.S. regulators for a fix of an electrical grounding issue that had halted flights for about 100 737 MAX airplanes, clearing the way for their quick return to service after flights were halted in early April, sources told Reuters.

The largest U.S. planemaker confirmed to Reuters the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) had signed off on the service bulletins Boeing sent to carriers on Wednesday on the fixes.

“After gaining final approvals from the FAA, we have issued service bulletins for the affected fleet,” Boeing told Reuters.

“We are also completing the work as we prepare to resume deliveries.”
