Ban on Boeing 737 MAX flights after mortal Ethiopia crash
New Delhi: After a Boeing 737 MAX flight crashed at Ethiopia, countries like China, Singapore and most recently Australia have grounded the flights in their capacity.
An Ethiopian Airline crashed with all 157 onboard on early Sunday morning merely six minutes after it took off for Nairobi.
China, on Monday, became the first country to order all Boeing 737 Max 8 planes grounded in the wake of the Ethiopian Airlines crash.
Airline authorities in Ethiopia, Singapore, Indonesia, Morocco and Mongolia quickly followed suit, as did carriers in Latin America and South Korea.
Despite the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) of the United States backing the Boeing jet’s worthiness on Monday, Australia became the latest country to ground the model.
An official said the airline hadn’t found any problems with the jets but is grounding them due to customer concerns and an inquiry is pending nevertheless.
