    According to Daniel, Lion Air will not conduct an evaluation for its fleet and hands it completely to the National Transportation Safety Commission (KNKT).

    However, they maintained that pilots, operational teams, technical teams, and other related workforces will be evaluated.

    Regarding a complete inspection of its Boeing 737 MAX 8, Daniel said that it has been done with results that suggest the fleet are not experiencing any technical issues and has been given the green light to continue its daily operations.

    Lion Air’s Boeing 737 MAX 8 fleet that went missing is Boeing’s latest fleet in 2018 and had only been purchased by Lion barely three months earlier on August 15.
