The European Commission has updated the EU Air Safety List, 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.
Among the airlines still banned from EU skies are Iraqi Airways, due to safety concerns.
EU Commissioner for Transport Violeta Bulc said:
"Aviation safety is my top priority and today's update illustrates our continuous efforts to offer the highest level of air safety to European citizens."
