The Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand said on Wednesday it is suspending the use of the Boeing Co's 737 Max 9 due to safety concerns.

The regulator said it will temporarily suspend the use of Thai Lion Air's Boeing 737 Max 9s for seven days, starting on Thursday and will continue to investigate safety measures.
