Taiwan joins countries in halting Boeing flights


Budget airline Thai Lion Air is the only carrier that uses 737 Max aircraft for flights to Taiwan, Lin said. None of the nation’s carriers have the Max 8 or Max 9 in their fleets, the agency said. On Nov. 7 last year, it issued an “emergency airworthiness directive,” then an airworthiness directive on Dec. 11, followed by a “continued airworthiness notification to the international community” on Monday. The nation issued the airworthiness directive after the FAA and EU Aviation Safety Agency issued similar directives, the CAA said. The FAA’s directive on Monday said that Boeing is updating the maneuvering system software, meaning that the system still poses potential flight risks.
