According to news on Danish Radio, the EU plans to set up an internet site where airlines which fails the EU safety standards can be found. Airlines on the list will not be allowed to fly to the EU. The goal is to improve safety.
It is also reported that European airlines will be helping the EU in setting up the list!!
Legislation will give passengers the right to have either their tickets refunded or be re-booked to another flight if the airline on which they have booked their flight is on the list. The list will be updated every three months.
The story can be found here (if you read Danish): http://www.dr.dk/Nyheder/EU/2005/12/06/112216.htm
Wonder who will get on the list? Could this the end of Korean and China Airlines flying to Europe?
