The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has previously urged global airlines not to use 128 Boeing 777s with PW4000 engines manufactured by Pratt & Whitney.
This type of engine exploded during a flight of a United Airlines aircraft.
But on Monday, a Boeing spokeswoman confirmed that flights with these airlines had been suspended.
Airliners with these engines will not be used until inspections are carried out to find out why the United Airlines aircraft engine exploded.
The PW400 aircraft are in the fleets of South Korean airlines such as Korean Air and Asiana, Japan Airlines and All Nippon Airways.

One of the engines of a United Airlines plane exploded shortly after taking off from Denver Airport on Saturday, but the plane managed to return to the airport. None of the 241 people in the liner were injured.
This is another trouble for Boeing. After two plane crashes, in which 146 people were killed, flights with Being 737 MAX aircraft were banned for less than two years.
