FAA Orders Safety Review for All Airlines

By Admin on March 19, 2008 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

The head of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has ordered federal aviation inspectors to ensure that all commercial airlines operating in the U.S. are in compliance with FAA safety standards and regulations. Calling the inspection order "unprecedented," Reuters reports that "the FAA wants a snapshot of compliance with an array of safety directives issued over the years that required inspections or other maintenance work" -- especially as to inspection of older Boeing 737 jets. The order comes shortly after the FAA levied a $10.2M fine against Southwest Airlines for safety inspection lapses. Southwest later grounded more than 40 of its planes until it could guarantee compliance with federal safety guidelines.
