Caribbean Airlines is assuring that will incorporate the necessary procedures and training to comply with all regulations and instructions before any new aircraft are introduced to its fleet.

The assurance comes in light of the crash by Ethiopian Airlines’ Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft on Sunday which resulted in deaths of 157 people.

Last November, the Trinidad and Tobago-based regional carrier announced that it had ordered 12 Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft.

“The airline industry is one of the most highly regulated industries in the world and there are rigorous processes and regulatory procedures to follow before any aircraft is brought into service,” the company said in a statement this morning.

“Caribbean Airlines currently uses Boeing 737-800 Next Generation aircraft and stands by its commitment to put the safety of its passengers, crew and operations first,” it added.
