Equatorial Guinea grounds most airlines
30 May 2006

Equatorial Guinea`s ministry of transport has grounded the planes of all but one of the country`s 20 airlines. The national airline, Ecuatoguineana de Aviacion (EGA), and 18 other firms had their operating certificates revoked following an inspection of aircraft fleets by South African experts. Only General Works Aviacion was allowed to remain in business, pending verified improvements in safety and airworthiness standards by other companies. (News24)
