The European Commission has adopted an update of the blacklist of airlines that are restricted from flying into EU countries due to safety concerns. The list removes the ban on the Iranian company, Mahan Airlines. The Commission currently imposes a complete ban on air carriers from seven countries (the Democratic Republic of Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Indonesia, the Kyrgyz Republic, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Swaziland). This is the eighth update of the Commission?s blacklist.
