Kazakhstan Joins List of Grounded Boeing 737 MAX Jets

ASTANA – The Kazakh airline SCAT, the only one in the country operating a Boeing 737 MAX aircraft, has grounded the suspect jetliner days after a crash in Africa, aviation authorities said on Tuesday.

“This is a decision taken by the private airline SCAT that operates the aircraft (Boeing 737Max),” a member of Kazakhstan’s Civil Aviation Committee told EFE.

The committee’s vice president, Toti Amirova, said SCAT was “waiting for the final results of the investigation into the causes of the accident.”

A number of countries, including the United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany, France, Australia, China, and Singapore, have suspended use of the aircraft following Sunday’s Ethiopian Airlines crash which killed all 157 occupants.

Amirova said the ban did not affect flights of other models of the US manufacturer Boeing that operate in the Central Asian nation.

Sunday’s crash heightened safety concerns about the model as it occurred less than five months after another new Boeing 737 MAX 8, operated by Indonesia’s Lion Air, plunged into the Java Sea, killing all 189 people on board.
