The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport released a Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) to alert pilots and air carriers on its decision to forbid B737 planes from flying in and out the country for the next three months.
The measure came a day after the country’s full-service flagship carrier Korean Air and budget airline T’way joined a growing list of airlines Wednesday in grounding the Boeing 737 model. The two airlines were to receive new B737 Max 8 planes later this year.
Eastar Jet, the only carrier here that currently operates 737 Max 8 planes, said it banned the operation of two jets on Tuesday.
