(Reuters) – Virgin Australia Holdings said on Tuesday it had reached an agreement with Boeing (NYSE:) to delay deliveries of the U.S. planemaker’s now contentious 737 MAX aircraft.

Last month, Australia’s civil aviation safety authority suspended Boeing’s 737 MAX aircraft from flying to or from Australia, following fatal crashes involving Boeing’s latest model in Indonesia and Ethiopia.

The country’s no. 2 airline said in a statement on Tuesday it had deferred delivery of its first Boeing 737 MAX aircraft from November 2019 to July 2021, and that it would convert an additional 15 of its 737 MAX 8 aircraft on order to 737 MAX10s.
