Much of the world, including the entire European Union, grounded the jetliner involved in the crash or banned it from their airspace, leaving the as one of the few remaining operators of the plane involved in two deadly accidents in five months.

The European Safety Agency took steps to keep the 737 Max 8 out of the air, joining Asian and Middle Eastern governments and carriers that also had safety concerns in the aftermath of Sunday's crash, which killed all 157 people on board.

Referring to the crash in that killed 189 people last year, European regulators said Tuesday that "similar causes may have contributed to both events."

British regulators indicated possible trouble with a reportedly damaged flight data recorder.
