July 2007: The European Commission (EC) published the fourth update of its "blacklist" of airlines banned from operating in the European Union (EU). The list, which takes effect today, now includes all 51 carriers certified in Indonesia, Angolan flag carrier TAAG Angola Airlines (ANG) and Ukrainian cargo operator Volare Aviation Enterprise (VLE). In addition, 10 airlines from Russia, six from Bulgaria and eight from Moldova must cease or limit operations in the (EU) because of preventive safety measures adopted by their respective national civil aviation authorities in consultation with the (EC). Four Russian passenger carriers - - Kuban Airlines (KIL), Yakutia Airlines, Red Wings and Kavminvodyavia - - have been denied all (EU) access.
Restrictions previously imposed on Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) have been modified and it now is allowed to fly to the (EU) with specific 747 and A310 airplanes in addition to the already-authorized 777 fleet.
Both Indonesia and Angola were angered by the ban. The Indonesian government announced it is considering possible retaliation. "We regret their decision as the (EU) never gave us a chance for a dialogue. The President, [Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono] has asked me to look for ways to fairly retaliate against them," Transportation Minister, Jusman Syafei Djamal said in a statement cited by Reuters. At present, no Indonesian carriers fly to the (EU), although Garuda Indonesia (GIA) planned to reintroduce Amsterdam service next year. The USA (FAA) downgraded Indonesia's safety rating in the spring.
Meanwhile, Angola (ANG) rescinded British Airways (BAB)'s traffic rights after UK authorities informed TAAG (ANG) that it would not be allowed to fly there. TAAG (ANG) was scheduled to begin passenger service to London Gatwick this month. According to press reports, Angola is considering prohibiting other European carriers - - both Air France (AFA) and (TAP) Portugal fly to Luanda - - from operating into Angola.
April 2008: The European Commission (EC) issued a revision of its list of banned airlines, the seventh update since establishment of the blacklist in March 2006. Newcomers are Ukraine Cargo Airways (the third Ukrainian airline after Volare Airlines (VLE) and Ukrainian Mediterranean Airlines) and Hewa Bora Airways (EXD) of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. (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).
November 2008: The European Commission (EC) added some other airlines to its list of airlines banned from flying into the European Union (EU). The (EC) "urged the authorities of Ukraine to further strengthen the enforcement of relevant safety standards" and kept Ukraine Cargo Airways, Ukraine Mediterranean Airlines and Volare Aviation (VLE) on the list.
