Conviasa and all Libyan airlines added to EU blacklist

[ April 4, 2012   //   ]

Venezuelan airline Conviasa and all were added to the EU’s blacklist of banned airlines subject to an operating ban in the EU on 3 April. The European Commission said that it had numerous security concerns about Conviasa, which offered flights to and from Spain. All the carrier’s planes had been grounded by the venezuelan government in 2010 following a crash, but flights had since been reinstated. The Commission added that it had “serious concerns” about the safety oversight of air carriers licensed in Libya and following consultation with the civil aviation authorities there had led to a general ban on flights to the EU until at least 22 November 2012.
