Sunday Plane Crash: Ethiopian Airlines Suspends 737 Aircraft From Flying

Following the crash of the 737 Boeing aircraft in its fleet, leading to the death of 157 passengers, including cabin crew and pilots, Ethiopian Airlines has suspended 737 Max 8 planes from operating flight.

In its Twitter account today, Monday, the Ethiopian Airlines said : “although we don’t yet know the cause of the crash, we had to decide to ground the particular fleet as extra safety precaution.”

Ethiopian Airlines has a fleet of four 737 MAX 8 jets, not counting the one that crashed on Sunday, according to flight tracking website FlightRadar24.

China has also ordered its airlines to suspend operations of their 737 MAX 8 jets following the crash in Ethiopia, the second of a Boeing 737 MAX jet since one operated by Indonesia’s Lion Air crashed in October last year.
