Ethiopian plane crash: UAE bans Boeing737 MAX

Dubai, Mar 13 : The United Arab Emirates General Civil Aviation

Authority (GCAA) issued a Safety Decision banning the operation of all

Boeing 737 MAX 8 jets in country's airspace with effect from

Wednesday, time until further notice.

The GCAA's decision comes following the Ethiopian Airways plane crash

shortly after takeoff on Sunday, killing all 157 people on board a 737

MAX 8.

It said the ban was a precautionary measure aimed at protecting public

safety in the air and on the ground. UNI
