 In addition EASA has published a Safety Directive suspending all commercial flights performed by third-country operators into, within or out of the EU of the above mentioned models.

Earlier on Tuesday, Singapore banned all Boeing 737 MAX variants from flying in its airspace and other countries such as Indonesia, China, India and Australia have made similar decisions.

EASA says it is continuously analysing the data as it becomes available.

On Tuesday, Boeing issued the following statement, "Safety is Boeing’s number one priority and we have full confidence in the safety of the 737 MAX. We understand that regulatory agencies and customers have made decisions that they believe are most appropriate for their home markets. We’ll continue to engage with them to ensure they have the information needed to have confidence in operating their fleets. The United States Federal Aviation Administration is not mandating any further action at this time, and based on the information currently available, we do not have any basis to issue new guidance to operators."
