Please note that in March 2019, after EASA and other countries had done so, the BHDCA also passed a safety directive which suspended flight operations of Boeing 737-8 MAX and Boeing 737-9 MAX aircraft over and above the territory of BIH, on the occasion of two aircraft accidents involving these aircraft types.
