According to Director General of CAAV Dinh Viet Thang, the CAAV has decided to nullify the granted licences and not to grant new ones for flights using the Boeing 737 Max to enter Vietnam’s airspace.
The decision took effect on 10:00 am on March 13 until the CAAV had a new ruling. CAAV's decision was issued in reference to the Ethiopian Airlines accident on March 10, which is the second involving the Boeing 737 Max in just several months.
Earlier, CAAV has decided not to grant a type certificate to Boeing 737 Max aircraft until the cause of the accident is clarified and the US Federal Aviation Administration issues measures to deal with it.
Vietnamese airlines have yet to use the Boeing 737 Max, but budget airline carrier Vietjet Air has ordered 200 aircraft of the kind, with the first ones expected to be delivered in October.
A representative of Vietjet Air said the airline is keeping a close watch on the situation relating to this type of aircraft.
Ethiopian Airlines’ flight ET 302 crashed near Bishoftu town on March 10, 62 km southeast of the capital Addis Ababa, with 149 passengers and 8 crew members aboard, confirming that the plane was the Boeing 737-800 Max.
The flight left Bole airport in Addis Ababa at 8:38 am (local time) before losing contact with the control tower just six minutes later.
