Boeing 737 Max aircraft have been banned from flying in Europe, following the Ethiopian Airlines crash that killed all 157 people onboard.

The European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) said in a statement that it was suspending operations of all Boeing 737 Max aircraft across Europe.
“EASA is continuously analysing the data as it becomes available. The accident investigation is currently ongoing, and it is too early to draw any conclusions as to the cause of the accident,” it said.
The ban comes as Boeing issued a statement saying that it had “full confidence in the safety of the 737 Max” and that safety was its “number one priority”.
“We understand that regulatory agencies and customers have made decisions that they believe are most appropriate for their home markets,” the planemaker added.
The US’ Federal Aviation Authority, which has a team in Ethiopia working on the investigation, is now one of the only nations to not ban the aircraft from its airspace.
