The ‘blacklist’ was established in 2006 and is updated annually.The latest update of March 30, 2010 imposes an operating ban on all airlines from Sudan and the Philippines due to noncompliance with international safety conditions. Some Iran Air jets will also be banned from flying to Europe while North Korea’s state-owned carrier Air Koryo has received a partial exemption from the airline blacklist.Source: EC press release of March 30, 2010Find updated list here>>.
