Canada grounds Boeing 737-8X ; US is only country to fly planeCanada suspended flights on Boeing Co.’s 737 Max, joining a global rush to ground the single-aisle jetliner after the second deadly crash in five months.

The safety notice restricts the 737 Max 8 or Max 9 from operating or overflying Canada, effective immediately, Transport Minister Marc Garneau said Wednesday in Ottawa. The decision was based on new but inconclusive satellite data that suggests similarities between a fatal Ethiopian Airlines crash March 10 and a deadly October accident in Indonesia.

“There can’t be any Max 8 or Max 9 aircraft flying into, out of or across Canada,” he said, confirming that it affects domestic carriers like Air Canada, WestJet and Sunwing, as well as international airlines.
