India's Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) said on March 11 it is reviewing safety issues related to Boeing's 737 MAX 8 aircraft operating in the country, a day after the fatal crash of one of the planes in Ethiopia.

A Nairobi-bound Boeing 737 MAX 8 operated by Ethiopian Airlines crashed minutes after takeoff from Addis Ababa on March 10, killing all 157 on board. This is the second incident involving a Boeing 737 MAX jet since one run by Indonesia's Lion Air crashed in October.

The DGCA said it would issue additional safety instructions later on March 11 and 12 for Indian carriers operating the Boeing 737 MAX 8 planes in India. Full service carrier Jet Airways Ltd and low-cost carrier SpiceJet Ltd own and operate these aircraft in India.
