Boeing asked to temporarily suspend flights of all 737 MAX aircraft

The corporation did this after abandoning liners of almost all countries of the world.

Boeing Aircraft Corporation has supported a temporary ban of most countries on flights of Boeing 737 MAX 8 and MAX 9 aircraft after a crash in Ethiopia. This is reported on the website of the corporation.

The corporation stated that it “decided to recommend to the US Federal Aviation Administration a temporary suspension of flights of the entire 737 MAX global fleet, consisting of 371 aircraft.”

On behalf of the whole Boeing team, we express our deepest condolences to the families and friends of those who died in these two tragic accidents. We support the initiative because of precaution. Security has remained Boeing’s core value since we started building airplanes, and it will remain forever. There is no greater priority for our company and our industry. We are doing everything possible in partnership with the investigators to understand the cause of the accidents, deploy safety measures and help avoid repetition.Dennis MuylenbergBoeing CEO

The latest statement from Boeing said that the company understands the decisions of states around the world, but still “fully confident” in the security of the 737 MAX.

After the crash of Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 on March 10 in Ethiopia, where all 157 people died, dozens of countries temporarily abandoned the operation of the liners of this series. In 2018, the Boeing 737 Max 8 crashed in Indonesia – all 188 passengers died. March 13, Donald Trump announced the ban on Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft in the United States. The only company in Russia, in the park where there are these planes, also suspended the operation of aircraft.
