The US Federal Aviation Authority says it will not suspend Boeing 737 Max aircraft despite mounting pressure from senators and workers' unions.
It says a review showed "no systemic performance issues" and there is no basis for grounding the aircraft.
An Ethiopian Airlines plane crashed on Sunday killing all 157 people on board, in the second fatal accident involving the 737 Max 8 model in five months.
A wave of countries and blocs have banned the plane from their airspace.
They include the UK, China, the European Union and Australia.
