The centre has banned the Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft three days after an Ethiopian Airlines flight crashed killing all 157 people including four Indians on board. The Boeing 737 MAX 8 aeroplane will be banned in Indian airspace from 4 pm today, according to an official of aviation watchdog DGCA said, according to news agency PTI. Several countries have grounded Boeing 737 MAX 8 planes, the latest and best-selling variant of the US-based plane-maker, since the crash. The decision by the DGCA has been done for the sake of passenger safety.

The ban comes a day after the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) had allowed the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft to fly under stricter conditions. The ban would impact SpiceJet the most. SpiceJet and troubled Jet Airways are the only two airlines operating the Boeing 737 MAX in the country.
The grounding of 12 such aircraft operated by the local carriers could disrupt the operations and increase domestic fares that are already high due to flight cancellations by Jet Airways and IndiGo.
