The order to ground the planes comes as other nations grounded the aircraft type, and under increasing pressure for the U.S.to follow suit.

"We believe the similarities [between the two crashes] are substantial", GebreMariam said. Many countries, including the United Kingdom, have suspended the plane after Sunday's crash. Others moved faster after Sunday, when an Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737-8 crashed just after takeoff.

For passengers, there are three fairly simple ways to know if you're booked to fly on a 737 MAX 8.

Deliveries of Boeing's best-selling 737 MAX jets were effectively frozen, though production continued, after the USA joined a global grounding of the narrowbody model over safety concerns, industry sources said.

"We are doing everything we can to understand the cause of the accidents in partnership with the investigators, deploy safety enhancements and help ensure this does not happen again", the company said.

An FAA team is on the ground in Ethiopia assisting with the investigation alongside the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board.

Both Air Canada and WestJet tweeted they will be complying with the precautionary grounding and advised customers to expect delays in rebooking.

Southwest Airlines said that the grounded jets represent 5 percent of its fleet and that it would try to keep as many flights on schedule as possible with other equipment.

In Kenya, which lost 32 citizens in the crash, a minute of silence was observed Thursday morning at the One Planet Summit on climate change attended by French President Emmanuel Macron.

Ahead of the United States' decision to ground the aircraft, many countries across the globe pulled the Boeing planes, including China, Indonesia, Germany, France and the United Kingdom.

Earlier on Wednesday Canada announced it would also ground the aircraft, after satellite data suggested similarities between the flight profiles of the Ethiopian jet and a crash involving a Boeing aircraft in Indonesia previous year.

Experts say it could take weeks or months to identify the victims, as their remains were scattered, charred and in fragments due to the impact of the crash and ensuing fire. And that brand is not just Boeing.

"There's always the scheduling concerns but at the end of the day safety is the priority", she said. Boeing reiterated that belief in a statement Wednesday following the president's announcement.

The crashes have already hurt Boeing's bottom line, with its stock shares set to lose a cumulative $33 billion in market value this week alone, MarketWatch reported.

Since October, several airline pilots have issued safety complaints about the 737 Max to a federal database.

Kosovo's Civil Aviation Authority said in a Wednesday statement the decision was taken because of "the investigation of the equipment" of the planes, adding that it is effective immediately.

Referring to the Lion Air crash in Indonesia that killed 189 people a year ago, European regulators said Tuesday that "similar causes may have contributed to both events".

The Ethiopian Airlines plane crashed minutes into its flight. He said the data provides an indication of the plane's course and its vertical profile.

Documents reveal that pilots flying last November reported engaging autopilot only for the aircraft's nose to pitch lower, prompting the warning system to exclaim: "Don't sink!"
