ICAO: global blacklist would not necessarily reduce accidents
9 July 2009

During a joint European Community – ICAO press conference Antonio Tajani, EC Vice-President in charge of Transport proposed to work on creating a global blacklist for unsafe airlines. ICAO Council president Roberto Kobeh Gonzalez rejected this EU proposal, saying “I don’t think that it is the solution at global level. There are various actions to be taken to avoid accidents. Lists that discourage
passenger to use a concrete airline would not necessarily reduce accidents.” (EC)
