First steps towards a EU blacklist of unsafe airlines
11 October 2005

In a vote the transport committee in the European Parliament approved the report by Christine de Veyrac MEP (EPP-ED, France) by 43 votes for, one against and one abstention, thereby clearing the way for a speedy adoption of a draft regulation to establish an EU black list of unsafe airlines. All carriers on the list will be banned from flying in the EU airspace, allowing the same level of safety for all flights departing or landing in the EU.
The European Commission should now compile the list on the basis of common inspection criteria. (Euractiv, EU)
