(EXD) previously was allowed to operate a single airplane under a special arrangement that has ended. Garuda Indonesia (GIA) also remains on the list. "The airline has made progress in the implementation of corrective measures, yet this is not sufficient," the (EC) noted. "Furthermore, the authorities of Indonesia have still to demonstrate that they have completed the corrective action." Following the update, nine individual airlines and all carriers from Equatorial Guinea, Indonesia, Kyrgyzstan, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Swaziland, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo are prohibited from operating in the European Union (EU).
