Royal Air Maroc suspends deal for two more Boeing 737 MAX planes - source

RABAT, Oct 10 (Reuters) - Morocco’s national carrier Royal Air Maroc has suspended a deal to purchase two more Boeing 737 MAX planes after the same model of aircraft crashed in Ethiopia, a source from the airline told Reuters on Thursday.

The carrier had planned to receive the two Boeing 737 MAX aircraft in June, the source said, adding that two other Boeing 737 Max planes in the carrier’s fleet had been grounded pending findings of an investigation into the Ethiopian crash in March.
