<span style='color:#780948'>ARCHIVED</span> - Oslo flights at Corvera could be jeopardized by 737 MAX grounding

Norwegian had planned to use one of the aircraft at Corvera prior to the tragedy in Ethiopia

The doubts over the safety of the Boeing 737 MAX aeroplane which have led to its use being suspended by the European Aviation Safety Agency (Aesa) and most of the equivalent bodies throughout the world could jeopardize some of the Norwegian airline flights scheduled this summer at the Region of Murcia International Airport in Corvera.

The recent crash in Ethiopia in which 157 people lost their lives follows another in which 189 died when a 737 MAX plunged into the Java Sea in October, and in that case the subsequent investigation found evidence of severe flight control problems on the flight before disaster struck.

This aircraft is used by low cost airlines all over the world, and Norwegian had been planning to use one of them on the services offered between the Costa Cálida and 4 cities in Norway this summer, specifically a round trip to Corvera from Oslo. Airline representatives are quoted by Europa Press as stating that as yet it is too soon to give an “absolute guarantee” that a substitute aircraft will be deployed, meaning that there is a chance that this route may have to be scrapped.

Europa Press also report that none of the other services scheduled for Corvera this summer were due to use the Boeing 737 MAX.
