Closure of Italian airspace for Boeing 737 Max

ENAC: stops Boeing 737 Max 8 from 9.00 pm on March 12th 2019
From 21:00 of March 12, 2019, as there is no reliable information regarding the dynamics of the Ethiopian Airlines accident that occurred on Sunday 10 March and that involved a Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft and the previous October accident in Indonesia, the Italian Civil Aviation Authority ENAC, for precautionary reasons, has ordered the closure of Italian airspace to all commercial flights operated with aircraft of this type.
Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft can no longer operate from and to italian airports until new communications.
All Boeing aircraft, and therefore also Boeing 737 Max 8, are certified by the FAA - Federal Aviation Administration, the American Civil Aviation Authority.
Certifications of aircraft operating in European fleets are validated by the EASA.
ENAC will continue to monitor the situation in contact with the European Aviation Safety Agency.
Furthermore, the Authority ENAC invites the operating airlines from and to the italian airports and that use these aircraft, to reschedule the flights trying to minimize the discomfort for the passengers, providing all the necessary information in compliance with the relevant Community regulations.
