All flights of Boeing 737 Max 8 and 9 aircraft to and from Greek airports have been cancelled following a decision by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) on Tuesday to ground these two aircraft models, forbidding them to fly in European airspace, following the Ethiopian Airlines crash.

The Civil Aviation Authority commander Konstantinos Linzerakos stated to the Athens-Macedonian News Agency (ANA) that all airports have been ordered to ban flights of these aircraft in Greek airspace as of Tuesday afternoon.
