FG ban Boeing 737-Max air planes

The Federal Government has banned the use of Boeing 737-Max planes in Nigerian airspace. The decision was taken at Federal Executive Council meeting held in Abuja. The meeting was presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari.

The Minister of State, Aviation, Heidi Sirika, disclosed to journalists soon after the meeting ended. He stated, Regarding Boeing 737 Max 8 and Max 9 that has been in the news recently, there is no cause for alarm as there is no operator in Nigeria that is using that type of air plane.

The Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority, whose mandate it is to issue advisory, has already issued advisory that nobody should fly into Nigeria or out of Nigeria using Boeing 737 Max 8 and Max 9, pending the determination of the actual cause of the crash in Ethiopia and also pending the outcome of the response of the manufacturer, which is Messers Boeing.
