IAA statement - Ethiopian Airlines flight 302

Mar 11, 2019, 14:06 PM by Alec Elliott
The Irish Aviation Authority (IAA) offers its condolences to all the families of the passengers and crew on board Ethiopian Airlines flight 302 that tragically crashed yesterday. We would especially like to extend our sympathies to the family of Mr. Michael Ryan.

The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is responsible for certifying all Boeing 737Max models and it is the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) that validates this certification across the EU, including Ireland. The IAA is liaising very closely with the EASA as the facts of this incident are established.

Additionally, we await further information from the accident investigation team and the manufacturer Boeing on the circumstances of this accident.

There are 13 Boeing 737 Max aircraft on the Irish aircraft register.  As safety is paramount to passenger and aircraft operating crews, the Irish Aviation Authority will issue notification to all operators of Irish registered Boeing 737Max as soon as any further information becomes available.
