Costa Rica’s Dirección General de Aviación Civil – Civil Aviation – on Wednesday, March 13 announced that, until further notice, the operation of the Boeing 737 MAX 8 and 737 MAX 9 aircraft in the Costa Rican airspace is prohibited.

Copa is among the airlines that operate to and from Costa Rica that include the 737 Max among their fleet: The others are American, Aeromexico, Air Canada, Alaska Airlines, Southwest, United, and WestJet.

The Director of Civil Aviation, Captain Guillermo Hoppe Pacheco, indicated that the decision is taken as a preventive measure, primarily for the safety of all passengers and crew.

Since Monday, a day after the Ethiopian Airlines crash, many countries began to temporarily ban the operation of these aircraft in their airspaces. Fifty countries have now grounded or banned the planes inside their airspace.
