Tokyo--Japan's transport ministry Thursday told overseas airlines not to use the Boeing 737 Max aircraft for flights to and over Japan for the time being, officials said.
The move followed two recent fatal crashes of the aircraft, including the one on Sunday involving an Ethiopian Airlines flight.
Japanese airlines do not use the 737 Max, while foreign airlines have already stopped using the aircraft for flights to and from Japan, according to the ministry.
On Wednesday, the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration grounded the 737 Max. Jiji Press
