Rwanda Sends Safety Alert on Boeing 737-Max8 on its Airspace

A Boeing 737 – Max 8

Rwanda Civil Aviation Authority has issued a safety and operational directive on Boeing 737-8 Max and Boeing 737-9 Max.

In a statement yesterday, the institution prohibited pilots and aircraft operators of the said aircraft  to conduct any flights in the airspace of Rwanda “with immediate effect.”

This follows a weekend tragedy in which an Ethiopian Airlines’ Boeing 737-Max8 crashed killing 157 passengers on board.

Boeing 737 MAX 8 — a new model recently unveiled to great fanfare by the US aviation giant, has been grounded by several countries including China and United States of America.
