No major technical issue with Boeing 787 Max 8 plane in India: DGCA
The aircraft type was reviewed by the DGCA a day after a Lion Air-operated Boeing 737 Max 8 plane with 188 passengers on-board crashed into the sea shortly after take-off from Indonesia's capital Jakarta.
"DGCA has reviewed performance of B737 Max 8 aircraft with Jet Airways and Spicejet today (Tuesday)," a senior DGCA official said.
"As on date, six B737 Max 8 aircraft in India have accumulated about 4,000 hrs since their induction effective June 2018 onwards. There are no significant technical issues encountered in these aircraft.
After Monday's crash, the DGCA got in touch with Boeing and US aviation regulator FAA to know more details about the unfortunate accident.
According to the civil aviation regulator, Boeing has informed that as on September 2018, 219 737 Max airplanes have been delivered across the world.
