February 2005: ACCDT: 737-242 (22075, EX037), wet-leased from Phoenix Aviation (PHX), crashed in mountains near Kabul = all 8 (FC) - (CA)/96 passenger fatalities. The flight crew (FC) had abandoned an approach to Kabul on a domestic flight from Herat, and was climbing away to divert when the airplane hit high ground at 11,000 ft about 30 km south of Kabul.

NATO helicopters found the wreckage of the Kam Air (KMF) 737-242 in a mountainous area southeast of Kabul. The Kam Air (KMF) 737-242, which was en route from Herat in western Afghanistan, disappeared from radar screens as it approached Kabul airport during a snowstorm.

The airplane's cockpit voice recorder (CVR) never was found amid wreckage strewn across a snow-covered minefield, and a recovered flight data recorder (FDR) was blank due to a technical failure. The European Union (EU), however, placed the airplane operator, Phoenix Aviation (PHX) on its blacklist of nearly 100 operators who they consider are too dangerous to fly within the (EU).

Phoenix Aviation (PHX) illustrates the menace of operators who are either illicit or operate on the edge of illegality. These operators place passengers' lives at risk by flying with little regard for safety. In examining the Kam Air (KMF) crash, investigators discovered that Phoenix (PHX) held an air operator's certificate (AOC) from Kyrgystan, an impoverished former Soviet republic. Phoenix (PHX)'s headquarters, however, actually were a continent away in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). By registering in one country and operating from another for many years, (PHX) escaped oversight that might have prevented this Afghan crash. Phoenix (PHX) ceased operation last year. Kyrgyzstan, Liberia, and Equatorial Guinea are among the countries singled out for failing to monitor air operation licenses (AOC)s. International safety officials say regulators from these countries don't check where the airplanes they license fly, or even whether they ever land on home soil.

The European Commission (EC) updated its list of airlines banned in the (EU), adding Kenya's DAS Air Cargo (DAC) and Uganda's Dairo Air Services (DAR), due to "the serious safety deficiencies identified in these twin airlines in the last few months," as well as Ariana Afghan Airlines (AFG). The (EC) also banned all 27 companies certified in Kyrgyzstan: Kyrgyz Air (KYR), Phoenix Aviation (PHG), owing to "the national control authority's inability to supervise them effectively."

Sixty-eight carriers - - 19 from the Democratic Republic of Congo, 21 from Liberia, 18 from Sierra Leone, and 10 from Swaziland - - have been removed, as they ceased operating because they lost their Air Operator's Certificates (AOC)s. Eight recently created airlines in the (DRC) have been added. Air Services Comores (COM) of Comoros, previously banned outright, now is subject to operational restrictions, and will be allowed to operate services bound for Europe with an airplane recently fitted with appropriate safety equipment. The (EC) also decided to keep Phuket Air (PHK) and Air Koryo (KOY) on the list.

The (EC) and the member states' aviation safety experts examined six other individual cases, including Pulkovo Aviation (STG), Pakistan International Airways (PIA), Ghana's Johnsons Air (JON) and Ajet (HCY) (the former Helios Airways). It concluded that it did not consider an immediate banning measure was called for on the basis of air safety criteria, but stated that it will "be keeping a watchful eye" on those operators' implementation of the corrective action they and their respective national authorities have promised.

November 2007: The European Commission (EC) issued the sixth update of its airline blacklist, removing Suriname's Blue Wing Airlines and lifting the operating restrictions imposed on Pakistan International Airlines (PIA). Both carriers, however, will remain subject to prioritized ramp inspections at Community airports in order to ensure their "consistent adherence" to relevant safety standards. "This latest revision shows that when airlines take rapid and sound corrective action to comply with safety standards, they can be withdrawn from the list quickly," (EC) VP Transport, Jacques Barrot noted. "It also shows that the list increasingly serves as a preemptive, rather than punitive tool for safeguarding aviation safety." He added that relevant oversight authorities verified measures taken by (PIA) and Blue Wing Airlines and "that these measures provide for long-lasting sustainable solutions to avoid the same problems recurring in the future."

The blacklist now comprises eight individual carriers including TAAG Angola Airlines (ANG), Mahan Air (MHN), and Ukrainian Mediterranean Airlines (UM Air - (UKM)), whose operations are fully banned in the (EU). Also banned are all airlines from Equatorial Guinea (ECV), Indonesia: (AWR); (BLN); (BTV); (DHI); (FES); (GIA); (KTK); (LKW); (MLI); (MND); (NOK); (PNM); (PTF); (REX); (SJA); (TGN); (TMG); (WON); (XPR); Kyrgyzstan: (ITL); (KYR); (PHG); (PHX); (STZ); Liberia: (LBG); Sierra Leone: (ORG); (RUM); (UVL); Swaziland: (AFC); and Democratic Republic of Congo: (TCS); (WDA); & (WET) with the exception of Hewa Bora Airways (EXD), which is subject to operating restrictions). Operational restrictions were placed on Air Bangladesh (BGD) and Air Service Comores (COM).

July 2008: The eighth edition of the European Commission (EC)'s blacklist of banned airlines does not include Iran's Mahan Airlines (MHN), thanks to "significant efforts and progress accomplished by this carrier, which were verified during an on-site inspection," but continues to include Indonesian airlines, including Garuda Indonesia (GIA). "The Commission (EC) decided that the Indonesian authorities have still not developed and implemented an efficient oversight program on any of the carriers under their regulatory control," it said. Ukraine Cargo Airways remains banned as well, and Yemenia Airways (YEM) was told it "should complete its corrective actions plan" by the Air Safety Committee's next meeting. All airlines from Equatorial Guinea, Indonesia, Kyrgyzstan, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Swaziland, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo are banned, while Gabon Airlines and Afrijet (FRJ) from Gabon are allowed to maintain operations at their current level.

July 2009: Iran's Mahan Air (MHN) was added to the (EU)'s list of banned airlines, while Garuda Indonesia (GIA), Airfast Indonesia (PTF), Mandala Airlines (MND) and Premiair were removed from the "blacklist." The latest update did not include Yemenia Yemen Airways (YEM), despite recent controversy following the June 29 A310-300 crash that killed 152 passengers and crew. All airlines from Zambia and Kazakhstan were added to the list with the exception of Air Astana (AKZ), which will be allowed limited access to (EU) nations.

TAAG Angola Airlines (ANG), already on the list of more than >200 carriers, will be allowed to operate "into Portugal only with certain airplanes and under very strict conditions," the European Commission (EC) said, adding that the limited access was granted to acknowledge "progress made by the civil aviation authority of Angola [and TAAG (ANG)] to resolve progressively any safety deficiencies." All other Angolan airlines remain banned. All Indonesian carriers remain banned apart from the aforementioned four. Complete bans are in place on airlines from Benin, Democratic Republic of Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Kyrgyzstan, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Swaziland.

European Commission VP Transport, Antonio Tajani has called for a global blacklist, a suggestion that has been rejected by (ICAO) for now. "We will not accept that airlines fly at different standards when they operate inside and outside Europe," he said, renewing his call. "It is high time that the international community rethinks its safety policy; those airlines which are unsafe should not be allowed to fly anywhere."
