American aircraft manufacturer Boeing has stopped deliveries of its 737 MAX aircraft type. This comes one day after a grounding was ordered on all 737 MAX operating passenger flights.

Following the crash of an Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 MAX 8 on flight ET302, all countries in which the aircraft type is operating, banned it from flying passenger service. On Wednesday, the United States Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) ordered a grounding for the 737 MAX in the USA. One day earlier, the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) did the same for its airspace.
