The Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) ordered Chinese airlines to suspend use of their Boeing 737 MAX aircrafts, after the deadly crash of a 737 MAX 8 operated by Ethiopian Airlines on Sunday, reported Reuters.
The flight was bound for Nairobi and crashed minutes after take-off, killing all 157 passengers on board.
It was the second time that a 737 MAX was involved in an accident since the 2017 release of Boeing’s latest version of the narrow-body jet, with the first being a plane operated by Indonesian budget carrier Lion Air in October last year.
A total of 96 Boeing 737 MAX jets are currently in service with Chinese airlines.
