EU updates blacklist of banned airlines
The European Commission updated a blacklist of airlines that are banned from flying into European Union (EU) member states due to safety concerns.
The new list still imposes a ban on all carriers from Equatorial Guinea, Indonesia, Kyrgyzstan, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Swaziland and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and Gabon save for Gabon Airlines and Afrijet, whose operations are frozen to the current level.
In addition, eight individual carriers' operations are fully banned in the EU.
The commission also decided to maintain the ban on all operations of Ukraine Cargo Airways, as the airline has not yet been able to successfully implement its corrective actions plan. (Xinhua)
