EU updates air safety list
The European Commission has updated the EU air safety list that names non-European airlines that fail to meet international safety standards. Such carriers are therefore subject to an operating ban or operational restrictions within the EU.
Following the update, all airlines certified in Benin and Mozambique have been removed from the list, following further improvements to the aviation safety situation in the two countries.
In contrast, the airlines Med-View (Nigeria), Mustique Airways (St Vincent and the Grenadines), Aviation Company Urga (Ukraine) and Air Zimbabwe (Zimbabwe) have been added to the list due to unaddressed safety deficiencies that were detected by the European Aviation Safety Agency during the assessment for a third country operator authorisation.
