Taipei, March 14 (CNA) Taiwan’s Civil Aeronautics Administration (CAA) on Thursday issued a directive suspending all commercial flight operations of Boeing 737-8 and 737-9 planes, in the wake of two deadly air crashes involving Boeing 737 MAX aircraft in less than five months.

The directive, effective from 7 p.m. Thursday, applies to all operators flying into, over, or out of Taiwan territory, the CAA said.

In addition, no permission will be granted for any flight plan of Boeing 737-8 and 737-9 operations, it added.

Currently, no Taiwanese airlines have Boeing 737MAXs in their fleets, according to local carriers.    [FULL  STORY]
