Singapore suspends Boeing 737 MAX aircraft after deadly crashes


All Boeing 737 MAX aircraft has been suspended from flying into and out of Singapore by the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) on 12 Mar.

The suspension came in light of two fatal accidents involving Boeing 737 MAX aircraft in less than five months. It will take effect from 1400H on 12 Mar, CAAS said.

Meanwhile, CAAS is working with Changi Airport and the affected airlines such as, SilkAir, Thai Lion Air and Garuda Indonesia to minimize the impact to passengers.


While the suspension is ongoing, CAAS will review on the safety risk with regards to the continued operation of the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft into and out of Singapore.

Additionally, CAAS said that it will continue to monitor the situation closely and will be closely in touch with the US Federal Aviation Administration and other aviation regulators.
