The US Federal Aviation Agency (FAA) on Monday (8) ordered an inspection of 2,600 Boeing 737 planes, checking for possible failures in oxygen masks.

The FAA said it has received “numerous reports” of oxygen generators that go into masks changing position in some cases. This change, according to the agency, may prevent oxygen from reaching some masks during cabin depressurization events.

In Brazil, the Cole has a fleet of Boeing 737-700, 800 and Max model aircraft..

If faults are found, airlines must fix them, the US Civil Aviation Regulatory Agency ordered.

In mid-June, Boeing had already issued a report to airlines recommending visual inspections of masks.

The FAA also mandated a general visual inspection and if faults were found, It is necessary to replace the oxygen generators with new oxygen generators or replaceable ones.

In the same statement ordering the inspections, the FAA also prohibited airlines from installing “potentially defective parts.”
