List of air carriers banned in the European Union

The following is a list of air carriers banned in the European Union. The European Commission has, through Commission Regulation (EC) No 474/2006 of 22 March 2006, established a list of air carriers banned in the EU (a blacklist). It includes all air carriers banned within the airspace of member states and air carriers with restrictions imposed on them. The list was most recently updated on July 24, 2008.

Background

The process by which an air carrier is blacklisted is laid out in Regulation (EC) No 2111/2005 of the European Parliament and Council. It involves consultation between the regulatory agencies of the member states, the institutions of the European Community, the authorities with responsibility for regulatory oversight of the air carrier concerned, and the air carrier itself. Before being listed, each air carrier has right of appeal. The list is subject to periodical review and the European Commission publishes the updated list online.

The list is part of a process to improve safety standards and identify airlines operating below essential safety levels. The European Union has decided to ban airlines from European airspace when they have been found to be unsafe.
