Caribbean Airlines hold back on adding Boeing Max 8 to its fleet

Caribbean Airlines, which was scheduled to next month increase its fleet by the inclusion of the Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft, will now delay in doing so. The conclusion to pause the process was drawn in the wake of two of the aircraft crashing, in Ethiopia and In­done­sia.

The decision was confirmed by Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Man­ag­er for the air­line, Dionne Ligoure, who said, “Caribbean Air­lines’ in­ter­na­tion­al avi­a­tion con­sul­tants, at­tor­neys and man­age­ment are close­ly monitor­ing the sit­u­a­tion and will take the re­quired steps to con­tin­ue to safe­guard the air­line, its customers and em­ploy­ees.”
