Yakutia Airlines In The EU

Wed Sep 19, 2012 10:01 pm

Today I was spotting at BCN and I saw the strangest approach I have ever seen. This 757 flew way over the glide path only to dive at very last moment and then go around. What's remarkable is that the weather perfect and no other aircraft seemed to follow that glide path.

Flight was Yakutia Airlines SYL9955 - Flight path according at Flightradar24

After some research I discovered that this airline had been banned from flying into the EU and then allowed again with some restrictions. Does anyone know why they were banned, and what their current restrictions are?

I photographed them in Prague & Bremen so they can't be so restricted...737 & 757 ac..

You will always find the answer to your question in the "Official Journal of the European Union":

Part of these reports from above- but unfortunately, you have to read all 3 past journals to understand the situation...
