Canada has become the latest country to ground Boeing 737
Max aircraft and forbid the plane from flying in Canadian airspace.
The U.S. is still permitting Boeing 737 Max aircraft to operate.
A Max 8 plane operated by Ethiopian Airlines crashed Sunday,
killing all 157 onboard. Last October, a Max 8 flown by Lion Air crashed
shortly after takeoff from Jakarta.
Canada minister of transport Marc Garneau said he made the decision to ground Boeing 737 Max jets
"following advice from Transport Canada Civil Aviation experts, as a
precautionary measure." Garneau added that it was "too soon to
speculate about the cause of the accident in Addis Ababa and to make direct
links to the Lion Air accident in Indonesia."
Air Canada flies 24 Boeing 737 Max 8 planes. The airline said it
was rebooking customers on other planes, warning that delays in rebooking and
in reaching Air Canada call centers should be expected.
