Air Canada announced on Wednesday, July 31, that it would continue to extend the grounding of the Boeing 737 MAX, resulting in an estimated 100 daily cancellations. Some twenty-four planes have been grounded from its fleet. As a result, the company is offering full fee waivers and rebooking passengers with affected itineraries.
Further cancellations or reduced flights are possible in the coming months.
Boeing and various international aviation authorities have recommended the temporary suspension of all Model 737 MAX aircraft worldwide on Wednesday, March 13, after the crash of Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 on Sunday, March 10, which killed all 157 people onboard a Boeing Model 737 MAX 8. All Boeing Model 737 MAX aircraft have been grounded worldwide.
Individuals flying Air Canada are advised to confirm their flight status, maintain a flexible itinerary, and anticipate further flight disruptions.
