The UK has banned all arrivals, departures and overflights involving the aircraft type that was lost in Sunday’s crash in Ethiopia, the Boeing 737 MAX 8.

As investigators urgently seek to understand why the Ethiopian Airlines’ flight ET302 crashed, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has joined Australia, Singapore, China, Indonesia and Malaysia in banning the jet.
A spokesperson for the CAA said: “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.”
All 157 passengers and crew aboard the Boeing 737 MAX 8 shortly after take-off from Addis Ababa, on a routine flight to Nairobi.

Tui Airways has five of the aircraft based in the UK, mainly in Manchester, and uses them on a wide range of longer European and North African links – recent destinations including Funchal in Madeira, Paphos in Cyprus, and Agadir and Marrakech in Morocco.

The other leading operator of the aircraft type from the UK is Norwegian, which has 18 of the variant and another on order. Research by The Independent on flights over the past week show that Gatwick-Helsinki is the most frequent UK service using the jet, but London and Edinburgh to Oslo and Edinburgh to New York (Stewart) are also popular.

The jet is also used for transatlantic services from Dublin.

In addition, some foreign airlines operate services to the UK using the MAX 8, including Turkish Airlines from Istanbul to Birmingham and back.

Kipaumbele ni usalama wa watu na chombo chenyewe,Tunataraji watalamu watakuja na majibu sahihi,je ajali hiyo yalikuwa ni makosa ya kibinadamu au equipment yenyewe.

Niliona Jana hawataki pia hiyo 737 isipite kwenye anga la Uingereza ni jinsi gani wanavyojali maisha ya watu...huko Argentina marubani wamegoma kuondoka na 737 mpaka wapate majibu sahihi kutoka Boeing na pia wataalamu wa maswala ya anga kutoka USA wamefika Ethiopia Jana kujua chanzo cha tatizo maana makampuni yalioagiza hiyo ndege kuna uwezekano yakafuta uhitaji wake na mambo ya fidia yakaendelea...
