Stewart Grounds 737 MAX 8 Fleet to Dublin
On Sunday March 10th Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 crashed and kill 157 passengers. According to CNN there are still many unanswered questions when it comes to the 737 MAX 8.
When Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 crashed and the model of the plane was reported, several countries started to ground their 737 MAX 8 planes. Back in October a crash involving Lion Air killed all 189 passengers on board. The plane was a 737 MAX 8.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is also voicing his concern about the 737 MAX 8. In a joint statement Cuomo and Port Authority Executive Director Rick Cotton said :
We recognize that federal law places responsibility for air safety decisions on the federal government. But more than a dozen governments around the world have already grounded the 737 Max, and the FAA should urgently consider the basis on which those governments have acted --- and move decisively to assure that the public's safety is protected,"
Locally, the 737 MAX 8 have been grounded for the time being. On Tuesday, March 12th, New York Stewart International Airport posted to Facebook that their Norwegian flights from Stewart to Dublin were cancelled. They said " As a result of Norwegian's decision to ground their Boeing 737 Max 8 fleet, tonight’s Dublin-bound flight from New York Stewart has been canceled."
If you have a trip planned out of Stewart to Dublin it is recommended that you check in with your airline about the status of your trip.
