Airline stocks tumbled in premarket trade Monday, as Boeing Co. shares cratered after a deadly crash involving the aerospace giant’s 737 Max 8 aircraft in Ethiopia, the second fatal accident involving the aircraft in six months.

Boeing shares BA, +0.00% slid more than 9% on the news that the aircraft operated by Ethiopian Airlines crashed shortly after taking off from the capital of Addis Ababa, killing all 157 people on board.
