Bonza say its been assured by Boeing its fleet of planes are not impacted by a grounding of planes in the US (SUPPLIED).

Bonza is assuring customers its still good to fly at Avalon after the US aircraft watchdog grounded 171 Boeing 737 Max 9’s.

The Federal Aviation Administration ordered the temporary safety recall after part of fuselage blew out of an Alaskan Airlines flight while in the air with 177 passengers and six crew on board.

Despite a large hole causing the plane to de-pressurise the plane landed safely at Portland airport in Oregon and all on board escaped injury.

The incident prompted Australia’s newest airline to issue a statement saying its fleet of planes are not impacted.

“Bonza doesn’t operate any of the 737 MAX-9 aircraft that have been temporarily grounded for inspection,” a Bonza spokesperson said.

“We have received assurance from Boeing that there is no impact to our fleet.”

After grounding its fleet of Boeing 737 Max 9 planes, Alaska Airlines has since cleared 18 of the aircraft to operate after undergoing inspections.
