Mozambican Airlines removed from EU’s blacklist

Published on : Friday, May 19, 2017

Mozambique AirlinesThe Mozambican air companies has been removed from European Commission’s blacklist of airlines which are not allowed to operate in the airspace of the European Union (EU).

 

Mozambique was first put on the list in 2011, not because of any safety problems with Mozambique Airlines (LAM) or any other Mozambican air company, but because the regulator, the Mozambique Civil Aviation Authority (IACM), was accused of not meeting EU standards.

 

The Commission said in a statement here Tuesday that it had decided that Mozambican airlines have been “cleared from the list following further improvements to the aviation safety situation”.

 

EU’s Commissioner for Transport, Violeta Bulc, said. “I am glad that we are able to take all carriers from Benin and Mozambique out of the air safety list. Their reforms have paid off. This is also a signal to the 16 countries that remain on the list. It shows that work and co-operation pays off. The Commission and the European Aviation Safety Agency are ready to assist them and raise the safety standards worldwide.”

 

Following the update, 181 airlines from 23 countries are prohibited from flying in the skies above EU countries.
