T&T finally follows rest of the world in suspending Max 8s

Trinidad and Tobago has finally agreed to suspend the Boeing Max 8 aircraft in its airspace.

The decision, taken by the Civil Aviation Authority, was announced by Minister of Works and Transport, Rohan Sinanan tonight.

It came after the only airline flying Max 8s to this country was forced to suspend operations.

American Airlines cancelled flights after the US ordered a suspension of the aircraft prior to T&T's decision.

T&T's decision also came after dozens of countries took the decision to suspend the aircraft. 

Up to Wednesday morning, T&T had maintained it saw no reason to ban the airline from its airspace.

Boeing had also earlier today recommended that all Max 8 aircraft be suspended globally.
