Just a week after the deadly Ethiopian Airline fleet crashed near Bishoftu, Ethiopia.
The said plane was en route to Nairobi, Kenya when the sad crashed happened.
Due to the accident, many nations are now pointing out the Boeing model 737 Max 8 with its security features, just like China, UK, among others, which orders ban the flight of airlines using the said model.
And now, another country has joined the list of countries barred the Boeing 737 Max 8, with Canada as the latest nation included in the said list.
The said country has grounded the world’s third largest fleet of Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft, following the crash of an Ethiopian Airlines jet on Sunday.
Canada’s regulator said that three Canadian airlines, operating 41 Max 8 jets, would be unable to use them in country’s airspace.
Canada joins a long list of countries to halt the aircraft’s use.
But the US regulator says it is safe to fly.
Canada’s transport minister said it had received new evidence about the crash.
Marc Garneau said that satellite data showed possible similarities between flight patterns of Boeing 737 Max planes operating in Canada and the Ethiopian Airlines plane that crashed.
“As a result of new data that we received this morning, and had the chance to analyze, and on the advice of my experts and as a precautionary measure, I issued a safety notice,” the official said.
“This safety notice restricts commercial passenger flights from any operator of the Boeing 737 MAX 8 or MAX 9 variant aircraft, whether domestic or foreign, from arriving, departing or overflying Canadian air space.
“This safety notice is effective immediately and will remain in place until further notice.”
The Polish Civil Aviation Authorities also announced on Wednesday that it had closed its aerospace to the Boeing 737 Max 8.
The UK, the European Union, China, Australia and India are among the countries that have suspended the Boeing 737 Max from their airspace.
