Austria, Poland and Italy have all suspended the use of Boeing 737 MAX aircraft in the aftermath of the Ethiopian Airlines crash.

  Austria announced the suspension of Boeing 737 MAX aircraft over the apparent “massive pr

oblems” with the fleet, a statement from Austria’s Transport Minister Norbert Hofer said on Tuesday. Hofer added that “safety is a top

priority” and the decision to ground the aircrafts was made “on the basis of the facts currently available.”

  Italy said it was grounding all Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft as of 9 p.

m. Tuesday (4 p.m. ET) over the “continuing lack of definite information” since the fatal Eth

iopian Airlines crash on Sunday, according to a statement from the Italian Civil Aviation Authority (ENAC) on Tuesday.

  The Polish national carrier LOT also said on Twitter: “In connection with the decision of subse

quent #LOT aircraft agencies, LOT flights with the Boeing # 737MAX8 are suspended until further not

ce.” “Connections as far as the fleet is concerned will be carried out using other types of aircraft,” LOT spokesperson Adrian Kubicki tweeted.
