Aviation Safety: EU Commission Bans 5 African Airlines


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

Following the update, five African airlines including Afrijet and Nouvelle Air Affaires SN2AG (Gabon), TAAG Angola Airlines (Angola), Med-View (Nigeria) and Air Zimbabwe (Zimbabwe) were banned from EU skies.

According to the Commission, Med-View Airlines and Air Zimbabwe were banned based on safety concerns with regard to the airlines themselves and unaddressed safety deficiencies detected by the European Aviation Safety Agency during the assessment for a third country operator authorisation.

Afrijet and Nouvelle Air Affaires SN2AG and TAAG Angola Airlines are subject to operational restrictions and can only fly to the EU with specific aircraft, the statement said.

However, Med-View Airline in a statement signed by its Executive Director, Business Development and Commercials, Mr. Isiaq Na’Allah, has said that it is not affected by the ban explaining that its Lagos-London operations are not affected and have being operating as usual with a wet-leased aircraft.

“We at Med-View Airline are committed to safety, and currently working with EASA and NCAA to restore normalcy, the statement said.

Nevertheless, there is good news from the EU as all airlines certified in Benin and Mozambique were cleared from the list, following further improvements to the aviation safety situation in the two countries.

The EU Air Safety List seeks to ensure the highest level of air safety for European citizens, which is a top priority of the Aviation Strategy adopted by the Commission in December 2015.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.

Good location astounding but the staffs are rude and they make me wait so long for the service. They charge me more than what is on the website and did not refund me the manager is not helping with the issue

I am really tempted to book the next ethiopian airlines ticket and relive your journey. The pictures shared with the post also reflect that you truly enjoyed the travel. Great post! I also like the fact that you have covered nuances about the food and entertainment service through the pictures. It helps people know what to expect on their travel by this airline.
