BELGRADE (Serbia), March 13 (SeeNews) - Serbia's Civil Aviation Directorate has suspended all flight operations of Boeing 737-8 MAX and Boeing 737-9 MAX models in the country's airspace, the institution said on Wednesday, following last week's deadly airplane crash in Ethiopia.
Serbia has banned the take-off and landing of those aircraft at all airports in the country, as well as the overflights operated within Serbia's airspace, the Civil Aviation Directorate said in a statement.
The decision is in line with the suspension issued by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) on all flight operations of all Boeing Model 737-8 MAX and 737-9 MAX aeroplanes in Europe.
The suspension was issued following the crash of Ethiopian Airlines 737 MAX 8 aircraft which went down minutes after take-off on a flight from Addis Ababa to Nairobi, Kenya on Sunday, killing all 157 people on board, including one Serbian citizen.
