CAA: No Greek carrier has Boeing 737 Max planes
No Greek airline has Boeing 737 Max aircraft models in its fleet, the country’s Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) said in a press release on Wednesday.
The statement came after Civil Aviation Authority chief Konstantinos Lintzerakos announced earlier in the day that CAA had banned both models of the plane – Max 8 and Max 9 – from flying in Greek national airspace, in line with a European directive issued after two fatal crashes involving the aircraft in Indonesia and Ethiopia.
“There is no Greek airline, licensed by the CAA, which has this type of airplanes in its fleet,” the statement said.
Speaking to state-run Athens-Macedonian News Agency earlier, Lintzerakos said that all airports were ordered to prohibit flights of these two types of aircraft in the country’s airspace on Tuesday afternoon.
Aviation officials in Cyprus announced similar measures on Tuesday.
