BRUS­SELS EU takes all In­done­sian air­lines off air safety black­list

The Myanmar Times - Weekend - - Asean Focus -

The Euro­pean Union says it has re­moved all In­done­sian air­lines from its safety black­list af­ter they made air safety im­prove­ments.

Air­lines across the coun­try were put on the black­list in 2007 over safety con­cerns but only seven were re­moved in re­cent years. The lat­est move an­nounced Thurs­day sees more than 50 In­done­sian com­pa­nies taken off.

A to­tal of 119 air­lines are now banned in the 28-na­tion EU.

Not all banned car­ri­ers fly to Eu­rope but black­list­ing them has been a strong busi­ness in­cen­tive for com­pa­nies to im­prove their stan­dards and for coun­tries to boost avi­a­tion safety. –
