New Zealand's Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has suspended the operation of Boeing 737 Max aircraft to or from New Zealand. This decision followed the tragic accidents involving the aircraft in Indonesia and most recently in Ethiopia.
Only Fiji Airways fly the Boeing 737 Max aircraft in New Zealand with no other airlines utilising the aircraft.
The CAA has advised that this suspension is only temporary, and that they will monitor the situation closely and analyse all information available to them to determine the safety risks of the continued operation of the Boeing 737 Max to and from New Zealand.
The CAA said it regretted any inconvenience to passengers on Fiji Airways flights in and out of New Zealand, but it believed it was important to take the action until more information was available on the cause of the two Boeing 737 Max accidents.
