EU removes all Kazakh airlines from black list
Baku, Azerbaijan, Dec. 9
By Elena Kosolapova- Trend:
The European Commission removed all Kazakh airlines from the EU Air Safety List, Kazakh investment and development ministry reported.
The EU Air Safety List is the list of airlines that do not meet international safety standards, and are therefore subject to an operating ban or operational restrictions within the European Union.
All airlines certified in Kazakhstan are cleared from the list, following further improvements to the aviation safety situation in the country.
Earlier the so-called black list of unreliable airlines included all the airlines of Kazakhstan, except for Air Astana.
The removal from the Air Safety List will allow Kazakh airlines to launch flights to Europe. Meanwhile they will have to pass a mandatory audit of the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) to carry out such flights.
