CFM, the GE Aviation/Safran Aircraft Engines joint venture, said there are roughly 14,000 CFM56-7B engines in service.

EASA's directive supersedes an AD the agency released in March, which became effective on April 2 and was in response to an August 2016 Southwest 737-700 uncontained engine failure.

The accident that involved the CFM56 jet engine from flight 1380 took place on Tuesday over Pennsylvania just 20 minutes after take-off.

Southwest accelerated its fan blade inspection immediately after the engine tragedy and said it had canceled about 40 of 4000 scheduled flights on Sunday. The CFM 56-7B engines are on about 1,800 "new generation" 737s in service in the US and about 6,400 worldwide.

Southwest said after the incident that it was accelerating its existing engine inspection programme "out of an abundance of caution" and expected to complete it over the next 30 days. The requirement from the agency comes after the engine maker, CFM International, issued a service bulletin recommending that more engines be inspected.

"The airlines are dictating to the FAA what they think should happen versus the FAA saying 'No, you are going to do this right now, '" Gary Peterson, vice president of the Transport Workers Union International, told NBC News. Others more recently serviced will require inspections within 18 months, the FAA draft order said. An EASA spokesman declined to comment. The letter also states that the airline's primary focus now is to assist the passengers who were aboard the flight in every way possible.

Several major airline officials said the order will primarily impact airlines with higher utilization of aircraft covering shorter routes like Southwest.

The shrapnel shattered a window and depressurized the cabin, partially sucking a woman out of the plane.

Initial investigations by the National Transportation Safety Board found evidence of fatigue cracking at the hub of the fan in an area that could not be detected by an external visual inspection.

The airline confirmed news reports from passengers that it had sent the cheques along with US$1,000 travel vouchers.
