EU adds more airlines to aviation blacklist
21 June 2006

The European Commission has added four new airlines to its aviation blacklist. Blue Wing, based in Surinam, and Sky Gate International, an airline licensed in Kyrgyzstan, are now subject to a total ban, after notifications by France and the UK. Star Jet, based in Kyrgyzstan, has also been banned by the commission after it discovered that Star Jet was the same company as Star Air, being licensed in Sierra Leone and already banned from flying within the EU. Meanwhile, the Sudan-based Air West, is now subject to operating restrictions when flying in EU territory after a notification by Germany. (EUobserver)
