December 2005: The European Commission (EC) decided to partially exclude Bulgaria, which is set to become a full (EU) member in January, from the internal aviation market. Bulgarian airlines will not be considered as "community carriers" and will continue to operate as "third-country operators" to and from member states in accordance with existing bilateral agreements. The decision follows (EASA) inspections in the past two years that revealed problems with the Bulgarian (CAA)'s ability to exercise adequate oversight of airplane personnel and maintenance organizations. "These deficiencies are considered by the Commission, as serious enough to adopt the safeguard clause," the (EC) said.
