How the grounding of Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft is impacting business aviation

March, 13, 2019 Update: The Federal Aviation Administration has grounded all Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft in the United States, joining a long list of other countries and airports. We will update this blog as the ramifications to business aviation become clearer.

Following the crash of Ethiopian Airlines flight of a Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft earlier this week, several countries’ civil aviation authorities have grounded the aircraft and its variants from landing/departing airports or entering that nation’s airspace.

With the list of airlines grounding the Max 8 growing, we are beginning to see an impact on business aviation operations in reduced parking areas.

Below is what we know so far. We’ll keep this article updated as more operational restrictions impacting business aviation are announced.

  • Changi Singapore (WSSS) Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore has suspended operation of all variants of the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft. As a result, effective immediately, Changi Singapore Airport (WSSS) will not be facilitating any general aviation/business aviation layovers until further notice.

    Only quick turnaround operations between 0200-1000z (LT1000–1800) will be facilitated subjected to runway/bay availability.

Conclusion
As the fallout from the Boeing 737 Super Max continues, we anticipate more restrictions to be placed on business aviation operations at certain airports where parking will be restricted because of grounded aircraft.
