The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has said that a joint governmental review of the now grounded Boeing 737 MAX will begin on April 29 and will include nine other global aviation regulators.

The FAA said earlier this month it was forming a team to review the safety of the aircraft, grounded globally following two deadly crashes - in Indonesia and in Ethiopia last month - that killed 350 people.

Boeing has announced a planned software update on the 737 MAX to prevent erroneous data from triggering an anti-stall system that is under scrutiny following the two crashes. It has not yet submitted the software to the FAA for formal approval. China, the European Aviation Safety Agency, Canada, Brazil, Australia, Japan, Indonesia, UAE and Singapore will take part in the 90-day joint review
