BALPA responds to grounding of 737 Max aircraft

BALPA has responded to the CAA’s announcement on 737 Max aircraft.

BALPA General Secretary Brian Strutton says:

“BALPA welcomes the precautionary action of the CAA in stopping commercial passenger 737 Max aircraft from arriving, departing or overflying UK airspace.

“Safety must come first.

“It is too early to know the cause of the latest crash and it is vital that air accident investigators carry out a thorough investigation to identify the cause so that measures to prevent future accidents can be put in place.”
