India bans Boeing 737 MAX planes from its airspace

“The time line is to cater to situations where aircraft can be positioned at maintenance facilities & international flights can reach their destinations,” the ministry said in a tweet

The civil aviation ministry had said late on Tuesday (March 12) that it would ground 737 MAX immediately.

Jet Airways Ltd and SpiceJet Ltd, two top Indian airlines, operate Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft.

SpiceJet suspended operations of the 737 MAX after the regulator’s decision to ground the aircraft, the airline’s spokesman said on Wednesday and Jet Airways, in a response to customer queries on Twitter, said it was not flying the 737 MAX.

The European Union’s aviation safety regulator has already suspended all flights in the bloc by Boeing 737 MAX planes, joining a wave of suspensions of the aircraft across the globe.
