Europe Bans All Indonesian Airlines From EU Airspace

51 Indonesian airlines, including Garuda, have been banned for EU airspace.

Brussels (RIA Novosti) Jun 29, 2007
The European Commission has released a new "blacklist" that bars all Indonesian air carriers from flights within the European Union for safety reasons, a spokesman for the EC said Thursday. In addition to 51 Indonesian airlines, including the national flag-carrier Garuda, the so-called EU aviation safety "blacklist," established in 2005, also includes TAAG Angolan Airlines from Angola and Volare Aviation from Ukraine.

The first blacklist of unreliable air carriers was introduced by the European Commission in March 2006. EU Commissioner for Transport Jacques Barrot said then that the list was intended to have a warning effect and the commission would be introducing necessary changes to it every three months.

While the European Commission has been working on its blacklist, Russia has tried to improve the image of its aircraft, also introducing bans and restrictions on flights by national carriers within the EU.

Two Russian state aviation regulators have suspended the charter and non-regular flights of several Russian air carriers to the European Union. The ruling affected Aero Rent, Tatarstan, Atlant-Soyuz, Aviacon Zitotrans, Centre Avia, Gazpromavia, LUKoil, Russian Sky and UTair air carriers

Inspections conducted by the European Commission in 2004-2006 of these carriers revealed numerous violations of air traffic and safety regulations that have yet to be corrected.

France Supports Cap On Airline Carbon Emissions
Paris (AFP) June 26, 2007
French President Nicolas Sarkozy said Tuesday he supported calls to set ceilings on carbon dioxide emissions from airlines, arguing that their ecological imprint could no longer be ignored. The European Union is considering plans to limit carbon emissions from airlines from 2011 to step up the fight against global warming, but the proposal has run into opposition from the United States.
