He made the statement while talking to the media about the Ethiopian Airlines accident which occurred on March 10 morning, making it the second involving the Boeing 737 Max in several months.
Thang said the CAAV convened a meeting on March 11 morning and decided not to grant a licence to the Boeing 737 Max until the cause is clarified and the US Federal Aviation Administration issues measures to deal with it.
A representative from a domestic carrier said it is closely tracking information regarding this kind of aircraft.
Earlier, a spokesperson of Ethiopian Airlines said the flight ET 302 crashed near Bishoftu town, 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. –VNA
