EASA Suspends All Boeing 737 Max Operations in Europe

Following the tragic accident of Ethiopian Airlines flight ET302 involving a Boeing 737-8 MAX, the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has suspended all flight operations of all Boeing 737-8 MAX and 737-9 MAX aircraft in Europe.

As a precautionary measure, EASA has published an Airworthiness Directive suspending all flight operations of all Boeing 737 MAX aircraft in Europe. In addition EASA has published a Safety Directive suspending all commercial flights performed by third-country operators into, within or out of the EU of the above mentioned models.

The accident investigation is led by the Ethiopian Authorities with the support of the National Transportation Safety Board, as the aircraft was designed and built in the USA. EASA has offered its assistance in supporting the accident investigation.

EASA is continuously analysing the data as it becomes available. The accident investigation is currently ongoing, and it is too early to draw any conclusions as to the cause of the accident.
