Moscow decided on Thursday to ban the American airplane manufacturer’s 737 MAX 8 model in Russian airspace following a deadly crash in Ethiopia، which claimed the lives of the 157 people on board.

"The Federal Air Transport Agency sent a notice of a ban on the flight of these types of aircraft in Russian airspace until further notice،" Agency Chief Alexander Niradko said in remarks to Sputnik.

The American airplane manufacturer’s 737 MAX 8 model faced an almost worldwide airspace ban.

Russia has become the latest in a string of countries that have temporarily grounded the Boeing 737 Max 8، Russia's Federal Air Transport Agency announced on Thursday.

Egypt and other Arab countries also have decided to ban Boeing 737 Max in their airspace.
