Boeing 737 MAX update following fatal Ethiopian incident

by Traveleads | March 12, 2019 | In The Air Latest News

Following the fatal incident involving an Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 MAX passenger aircraft Traveleads continues to monitor the latest updates from the UK Civil Aviation Authority.  Instructions have been issued to stop Boeing 737 MAX commercial passenger flights (operated by ALL airlines) from arriving, departing or overflying UK airspace – this decision has been taken as a precautionary measure. The CAA issued the following statement:

“Our thoughts go out to everyone affected by the tragic incident in Ethiopia on Sunday.

The UK Civil Aviation Authority has been closely monitoring the situation, however, as we do not currently have sufficient information from the flight data recorder we have, as a precautionary measure, issued instructions to stop any commercial passenger flights from any operator arriving, departing or overflying UK airspace.

The UK Civil Aviation Authority’s safety directive will be in place until further notice.

We remain in close contact with the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and industry regulators globally.”

Traveleads will be contacting all customers who may be affected by the precautionary measures in place and we will continue to monitor the situation, providing updates to all clients should further measures or changes be put in place.  If you are concerned that your travel plans may be affected please contact your Traveleads consultant.
