The airline said on Friday that the Air Canada Boeing 737 Max ferry flight to Montreal was diverted earlier this Monday due to engine problems.
The airline said the pilot of Air Canada Flight 2358 received an engine warning shortly after taking off from Marana, Arizona on Tuesday. After two fatal crashes, the airline has been storing 737 Max jets there after the aircraft was grounded worldwide in March 201
Air Canada said: “In this case, as part of the normal operating procedures, it was decided to shut down an engine” and transferred to Tucson. There were three crew members on board the flight and no passengers. The plane stayed in Tucson.
Boeing declined to comment and referred the question to the airline.
The Belgian Airlines website Aviation24.be stated that the aircraft had “hydraulic low pressure instructions.” Air Canada did not immediately respond to further requests for comment.
After Boeing changed the software related to the two crashes and resolved other issues, the US authorities lifted the ban on the aircraft last month. Canadian officials approved the aircraft’s design changes last week.
