List of airlines banned within the EU

Airlines which are clearly not safe are banned from flying their aircraft in the EU. These airlines are on an EU blacklist. The list contributes to the safety of international air travel. The EU updates the list every three months, but it can also be modified more frequently if necessary.

Categories on the blacklist

Airlines appearing on the blacklist fall into two categories:

  • the airline is not permitted to fly in EU airspace at all;
  • the airline is banned from operating in Europe or may operate only under certain restrictions. It may, for example, only be permitted to fly in EU airspace with certain approved aircraft.
