14 June, 2018, The European Commission updated the EU Air Safety List, in which all airlines certified in Indonesia are removed from the list, means they are allowed to fly to any EU countries.
EU safely list the airlines that do not meet international safety standards, and are therefore subject to an operating ban or operational restrictions within the European Union.
All Indonesian carriers were put on the EU Air Safety List in 2007 due to unaddressed safety concerns. Over the past years, only 7 airlines were removed, but most remained on the list until today.
Following today’s update, a total of 119 airlines are banned from EU skies:
114 airlines certified in 15 states (Afghanistan, Angola (exception of one airline which operates under restrictions and conditions), Republic of the Congo, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Djibouti, Equatorial Guinea, Eritrea, Gabon (exception of 2 airlines which operate under restrictions and conditions), the Kyrgyz Republic, Liberia, Libya, Nepal, São Tomé and Príncipe, Sierra Leone and Sudan),
Five individual airlines, based on safety concerns with regard to these airlines themselves: Iran Aseman Airlines (Iran), Iraqi Airways (Iraq), Blue Wing Airlines (Suriname), Med-View Airlines (Nigeria) and Air Zimbabwe (Zimbabwe).
