Hello,

I was just wandering why airlines like GAruda or TAAG Angola (operating brandnew 777) are still on the european blacklist.

For sure there are politics in the game, but I really can not understand why an airline like Garuda does not change things to be back in Europe.

What do you think about it ?

Generally the EU blacklists countries whose national civil aviation authorities fail to meet international standards of supervision and regulation. Additionally some individual airlines are listed if their procedures are not up-to-scratch. Insofar as Garuda is concerned the whole of Indonesia has been black-listed so no airline registered there can fly to the EU - Garuda being the only one with equipment able to fly that far. As far as I'm aware the same holds true for Angola although Portugal has been working with them to help them reach the necessary standards.

Afghanistan, Kyrghystan and a few other countries are similarly listed. In the cases of some airlines particular planes are excluded from the blacklist if it can be shown that they are maintained and flown within relevant standards - eg they are operated by another carrier or are maintained elsewhere.

Hop to it, fly for life!

However, Garuda has passed he IATA Operational Safety Audit which is now a requirement for IATA membership. On the other hand, TAAG has not and is no longer an IATA member.
