​EU bans flights from Armenia-based airlines


The European Commission has banned entry flights from Armenia-based airlines as they do not meet international safety standards, said EU Commissioner for Transport Adina Vălean, according to the official website of the European Commission.

The list includes Aircompany Armenia, Armenia Airways, Armenian Helicopters, Atlantis Armenian Airlines, Atlantis European Airways, Mars Avia, and Skyball.

The move follows an update to the commission’s EU Air Safety List, which lists 96 airlines banned from EU skies.

The EU Air Safety List helps maintain high levels of safety in the EU and assists affected airlines and countries to improve their safety standards, for them to be taken off the list eventually. Besides, the EU Air Safety List has become a primary preventive tool, as it motivates countries with safety problems to act upon them before a ban under the EU Air Safety List is necessary.
