EU removes all airlines from Indonesia from its restrictive Air Safety List

The European Commission announced that it cleared all air carriers from Indonesia from the European Union's (EU) Air Safety list.

The Commission updated the EU Air Safety List, the list of airlines that do not meet international safety standards, and are therefore subject to an operating ban or operational restrictions within the European Union.

Following today's update, all airlines certified in Indonesia are cleared from the list, following further improvements to the aviation safety situation that was ascertained in the country. Over the past years, a small number (7 in total) were removed, but the bulk of Indonesian carriers remained on the list until now.

A total of 119 airlines are still banned from EU skies:

 • 114 airlines certified in 15 states[1], due to a lack of safety oversight by the aviation authorities from these states;

 • Five individual airlines, based on safety concerns with regard to these airlines themselves: Iran Aseman Airlines (Iran), Iraqi Airways (Iraq), Blue Wing Airlines (Suriname), Med-View Airlines (Nigeria) and Air Zimbabwe (Zimbabwe).

An additional six airlines are subject to operational restrictions and can only fly to the EU with specific aircraft types: Afrijet and Nouvelle Air Affaires SN2AG (Gabon), Air Koryo (Democratic People's Republic of Korea), Air Service Comores (the Comoros), Iran Air (Iran) and TAAG Angola Airlines (Angola).
