"All of those planes are grounded effectively immediately", Trump said at a press conference on Wednesday.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday spoke on the phone with his Ethiopian counterpart as part of a diplomatic effort to secure Israeli rescue workers access to the site of a plane crash, where they hope to locate the bodies of the two Israeli victims who were on board.

"The FAA continues to review extensively all available data and aggregate safety performance from operators and pilots of the Boeing 737 MAX", the agency said in a statement Tuesday.

'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'.

Talking with US Rep. Dan Kildee (D-MI) Wednesday, Keilar asserted that the plane crashed because Boeing had failed to implement a pilot software upgrade in January, as the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) was non-operational due to the shutdown.

On Tuesday, the United Kingdom joined Singapore, Australia and a number of other countries in banning Boeing 737 Max planes from operating in or over its airspace.

US travelers have expressed concerns about the aircraft after an Ethiopian Airlines plane traveling to Kenya crashed on Sunday, killing all 157 people on board. The same model crashed in a similar time frame in Indonesia last October, killing 189 people.

The U.S. was one of the last countries to ban the aircraft.

President Donald Trump spoke to Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg on Tuesday, CNN reported. The FAA also said it had found no reason to ground the planes.

Transport Canada announced Wednesday it will ground the Boeing 737 Max fleet following fatal crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia, leaving tens of thousands of travellers scrambling ahead of spring break to rebook flights.

"They don't have another 24 jets just sitting parked somewhere that they can bring into service to cover it.They'll have to cancel flights", he said.

Garneau stressed that Canada is banning the model out of caution.

It said the department has been in close contact with the FAA and other the relevant organizations, including the two airlines, SpiceJet of India and Russia's Globus Airlines, that use the aircraft to operate flights into and out of Hong Kong International Airport.
