Boeing 737 Max aircraft not used at Burlington airport

By  | 

BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) Executive orders are in place now that President Donald Trump is grounding all Boeing 737 Max 8 and 9 airplanes.

This comes days after a crash in Ethiopia that killed 157 people.

But does this affect us in Burlington? The answer is not at the airport itself. But because the majority of flights that leave Burlington have layovers, there's a chance you could be impacted.

The airport says while 737 Boeing planes fly in and out of Burlington, Max 8s and 9s do not.

Now, 371 planes are grounded. In the U.S. airlines like American, Southwest and United are impacted.

"Any plane currently in the air will go to its destination and thereafter be grounded until further notice," President Trump said.

While no planes will be grounded at the Burlington airport, anyone with connecting flights could face delays or cancellations.

If you're catching a flight any time soon that has a layover, the airport suggests doing some research. You can check your tickets to find out what airline you're flying with.

While most boarding passes do not have the model of the plane listed on them, there are some websites that allow you to type in your flight number and find out.
