MADRID, Aug 21 (Reuters) - Spanair (SAS.ST) CEO Marcus Hedblom said on Thursday he saw no reason to ground Spanair's MD-82 fleet following Wednesday's crash at Madrid airport, which killed more than 150 people.

"We have to closely monitor the records but we see no reason to take such measures," Hedblom told reporters in Madrid. (Reporting by Robert Hetz; Writing by Tracy Rucinski)
