Low-cost airline Norwegian Air Shuttle, will be demand financial compensation from Boeing for the grounding of its 18 Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft pending an investigation into the cause of a crash in Ethiopia.
Norwegian cancelled 19 flights on Wednesday, the day after it decided to ground all flights with the Boeing 737 MAX 8, the same model that crashed in Ethiopia on Sunday killing all 157 passengers and crew.
Norwegian said it had reorganised its operations and transferred passengers to other flights to remedy the situation.
EASA, the EU aviation safety agency closed European airspace to the aircraft after Sunday’s crash, the second with that model in the space of five months.
