Following the second deadly crash involving a 737 Max 8 plane in months, local 737 flights were canceled and Gov. Cuomo wants 737s to be grounded.

On Sunday, a 737 Max 8 crashed in Ethiopia, killing all 157 people on board. It was the second deadly crash of a MAX 8 in less than five months. Following the second fatal crash, the plane is being grounded by governments around the world

On Tuesday, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the Porth Authority released a joint statement asking the FAA to ground Boeing 737 Max 8 planes for the safety of the public.

"We recognize that federal law places responsibility for air safety decisions on the federal government. But more than a dozen governments around the world have already grounded the 737 Max, and the FAA should urgently consider the basis on which those governments have acted --- and move decisively to assure that the public's safety is protected," Cuomo and Port Authority Executive Director Rick Cotton said in the joint statement.

Norweigan Airlines which flies from New York Stewart International Airport in Newburgh to Europe announced on Tuesday they won't fly a 737 Max "until further notice." The announced forced Dublin-bound flight from Stewart to be canceled.

"We are now working on re-allocating our fleet options with other aircraft types, re-bookings to other flights and combining flights to minimize inconvenience caused for our passengers. We would like to apologize to customers who are affected, but the safety and security of our customers and colleagues will never be compromised. Affected passengers will be informed via SMS and our web pages," Norweigan said in a statement.
