Lockdown to end on schedule, hints PM; list 10 KRAs, union ministers told

Today's meeting of the prime minister with his colleagues in the union ministries raises hope for the economy even amid the apprehension that the nation might not be able to break the chain of the COVID contagion by 14 April

Washington, DC: The United States’ regulator Federal Aviation Administration said on Tuesday there is “no basis” to stop the operations of Boeing 737 MAX planes.

On Sunday in Ethiopia, a plane of this same model had crashed near Addis Ababa, which killed 157 people.

“The FAA continues to review extensively all available data and aggregate safety performance from operators and pilots of the Boeing 737 MAX. Thus far, our review shows no systemic performance issues and provides no basis to order grounding the aircraft,” said Federal Aviation Administration chief Daniel Elwell in a statement.

“Nor have other civil aviation authorities provided data to us that would warrant action,” Elwell added, “In the course of our urgent review of data on the Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 crash, if any issues affecting the continued airworthiness of the aircraft are identified, the FAA will take immediate and appropriate action.”

Before Ethiopia’s crash, the plane of this model had crashed shortly after flying from Jakarta, in which 189 people died.

Despite the assurances that these Boeing planes are safe and reliable, many other countries including the EU, Britain, India, China have either stopped the operation of the aircraft or have restricted it in their airspace.
