Sri Lanka is monitoring the safety of the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft after a crash in Ethiopia killed 157 people early this week.
Xinhua reports that Sri Lanka was monitoring the situation closely and that no such aircraft was overflying or landing in Sri Lanka now.
Six operators who flew the model to Sri Lanka’s Bandaranaike International Airport had grounded the aircraft.
The Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft have been grounded in several countries and regions in Asia-Pacific amid safety concerns following the fatal crash of the Ethiopian Airlines passenger jet.
The Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 MAX 8 bound for Nairobi, Kenya crashed shortly after taking off from Addis Ababa on Sunday, killing all 157 people on board.
