Conviasa and Philipine Airlines removed from EU blacklist
10 July 2013

The European Commission has adopted the 21st update of the list of airlines banned in the European Union, removing Conviasa and Phillipine Airlines.

Following improvements in the safety situation in the Philippines, Philippine Airlines is the first airline from this country allowed back into European skies since 2010. Venezuelan airline Conviasa, which was banned in 2012 has also been removed from the list  following the successful resolution of serious safety deficiencies.

Progress was also noted in Libya but the Libyan authorities agreed that Libyan airlines would not be allowed to operate in Europe until they are fully recertified to the satisfaction of the European Union.
