Does anybody know what airlines (if any) are banned from entering UK airspace for safety or political reasons?

Ariana Afghan is not allowed to fly into the UK (unless they are hijacked) due to the UK government not recognising the Talib`n government in Kabul.

Jamahiriya Libyan Arab Airlines was banned (at least I think they are now allowed to fly back to the UK) due to the Libyan's refusing to hand over the PA103 bombing suspects.

I am sure there are more, just can't remember what they are at this time.

I'm pretty sure Libyan Arab were banned in 1985 or 1986, not because of Lockerbie (which happened in 1988), but because of the shooting of a policewoman outside the Libyan Embassy in London in 1984. Also, in the mid - eighties, Libya was deemed by the USA and Britain to be supporting world terrorism and was generally considered a poltical pariah. The Anti-Libyan atitude even crept into the film "Back to the Future"!

You are absolutely right (I think). I know that diplomatic relations between the UK and Libya were broken off due to the incidenct you mentioned, but I am not sure whether flights between the two countries were banned as well. The reason I say this, is due to a recent case where the UK broke off diplomatic relations with Nigeria but flights between the two countries continued. Although it would be a safe bet to assume that what ya have said is in fact correct.

P.S. The US has always regarded Libya as a terrorist nati`n ever since Gaddafi ousted the US-backed Libyan 'king' years before the Pan Am bombing.

P.P.S. Ever get the chance, give Gaddafi's "Green Book" a read...quite interesting.

I just checked out Ukraine International's new website www.ukraine-international.com
and London is still on the summer timetable, so I guess, they are not banned.....

Interesting. Read the Green Book as part of my course on the Mid East. I think it is ban in Arab States as it makes no mention of Islam any where in his book. Anyway, I think Libyan airlines have restarted their flights to London as ties between the UK and Libya has normalised now. (They exchanged ambassadors earlier in the year)

Hope this helps.
