A FEDERATION OF 7 SHEIKDOMS, UNDER BRITISH PROTECTION UNTIL 1971, THE (UAE) HAS ROCKETED IN A GENERATION FROM RURAL AND POOR, TO URBAN AND OIL-RICH.

MAY 2001: BUYS 4 727-2H3'S (21179; 21239; 21318; 21320) FROM TUNISAIR
(TUN).

December 2002: 1 707-336C (854-20517, 3D-GFG), wet-leased to Kinshasa Airways ("Spirit of Africa") (KNS).

January 2003: 2 DC-8-55F's (208-45683, 9Q-CMG; 274-45858, 3C-QRG), and 707-399C (601-19415, 9Q-CKS) ex-Cargo Plus Aviation (CPB), who ceased operations, wet-leased to Kinshasa Airways as "Spirit of Africa."

March 2006: The European Union (EU) banned 92 airlines, most of them based in Africa, from landing at European airports, declaring them unsafe by international standards.

The ban applies to cargo and passenger carriers from Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Sierra Leone, Swaziland and Liberia judged to have an "inadequate system for regulatory oversight" or insufficient safety standards. It will be enforced by all 25 (EU) nations, plus Norway and Switzerland.

The flight ban applies to Sky Aviation (SYV).

The flight ban also applies to Ariana Afghan Airlines (AFG), North Korea's Air Koryo (KOY) and Thailand's Phuket Airlines. Two airlines each from Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan were listed as well.

Lesser restrictions were placed on Air Bangladesh (BGD) and Buraq Air from Libya, which will be able to operate flights if they use certain planes that have met safety requirements, the European Commission (EC) said.

The African Airlines Association (AFRAA) criticized the European Union (EU)'s publication of a list of airlines banned from operating to the (EU) "as damaging the African airlines business." According to (AFRAA), the blacklist "paints a negative picture of all scheduled flights from the continent." In a statement, (AFRAA) Secretary General Christian Kossi said that "no scheduled African airline member of (IATA) or (AFRAA) is included in the blacklist," yet it "sends the wrong message to the average European passenger that all African airlines are potentially dangerous, and it is safer to travel with European airlines." In effect, this amounts to an act of "misinformation and unfair competition," he stated. Kossi also said none of the banned airlines flies to (EU) nations and the bulk of them "exist only on paper and nobody knows them."

Note: SKY AVIATION (SYV) is listed on the latest (EU) blacklist released 03.04.2012 of airlines whose operations are subject to a ban within the (EU)*. *Airlines listed in Annex A could be permitted to exercise traffic rights by using wet-leased airplanes of an air carrier which is not subject to an operating ban, provided that the relevant safety standards are complied with.
