Wednesday March 13, 2019
Canada will ground Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft in the wake of the Ethiopian Airlines crash that killed all 157 people on board, including 18 Canadians.
“This safety notice restricts commercial passenger flights from any air operator, both domestic and foreign, of the Boeing 737 MAX 8 and 9 aircraft from arriving, departing, or overflying Canadian airspace,” Transport Minister Marc Garneau said Wednesday.
Garneau said the decision was made after his department received new information.
