The Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam said on Wednesday it would not license Boeing 737 Max aircraft in the country after the two deadly crashes in the world within five months that left no survivors, local media reported.
The latest decision was made based on the evaluation of information related to the launching of Boeing 737 MAX. Accordingly, in order to ensure the aviation safety, the Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam decided not to grant new permits and temporarily cancel the permission with the flights using the Boeing 737 MAX in Vietnam’s air space.
The latest decision from the Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam will be valid from 10am March 13th 2019 until the further notice is made.
So far, it is reported that all the airlines in Vietnam have not used the Boeing 737 MAX in all kinds of flights. Recently, Vietjet has signed the contract to buy 200 airplanes from Boeing, the first one will be transferred to Vietjet in October 2019. 
In the latest statement to the public, Vietjet said that Vietjet does not use any of 737 MAX in all its flights.
Since the fatal air accidents in Ethiopia in the latest Sunday, there have been so many countries banning the Boeing 737 MAX into their air space. Today, Hong Kong has become the newest national administration to give out similar decision, following China, Germany and many other countries in the European Union.
Hong Kong has banned Boeing’s 737 MAX jet from the city’s airspace until further notice as it finally joined more than 45 jurisdictions in imposing safety controls on the jetliner.
“The temporary prohibition will take effect at 6pm Hong Kong time on Wednesday and continue until further notice,” a spokesman for the Civil Aviation Department (CAD) said in a statement.
