Southwest Airlines announced Thursday it will continue to ground Boeing 737 Max plane through September. The move will impact about 100 flights from its schedule. 

The Federal Aviation Administration grounded the jets initially in March after two fatal crashes within five months of one another. 

In April, Southwest removed the jets with the intention of keeping them off the schedule through Aug. 5. 

“With the timing of the MAX’s return-to-service still uncertain, we are again revising our plans to remove the MAX from our schedule through Sept. 2,” the Dallas-based airline said in a statement.
