JOHANNESBURG – Comair said its flight crew and engineers remain vigilant and if it receives any information suggesting it should reassess the use of the Boeing 737 Max 8, appropriate action will be taken.

The safety of this aircraft is in the spotlight after Sunday’s deadly crash in Addis Ababa in which all 157 people on board were killed.

Ethiopian Airlines, as well as the Chinese government, have since ground this Boeing model.
