BAGHDAD (Reuters) – Iraq on Wednesday banned U.S. planemaker Boeing Co’s 737 MAX aircraft from coming into or transiting its airspace, a assertion from the civil aviation authority mentioned.
It mentioned the option was centered on air safety anxieties.
The transfer comes next a 737 MAX crashed in Ethiopia on Sunday killing 157 people. An extra catastrophe involving a 737 MAX in Indonesia five months back killed 189 people.
