EU bans all airlines coming from Sudan, puts restrictions on Iran

altMarch 31- The European Union (EU) has banned all airlines coming from Sudan and the Philippines into the region for safety reasons. "The European Commission imposes an operating ban on all operations of Sudanese air carriers, due to a poor safety performance of the civil aviation authority of Sudan resulting from persistent non-compliance with international standards," said the EU's executive body in a statement.
Furthermore, the statement said that an examination of the safety measures taken by Iran Air showed serious flaws in their system. Thus, it was decided that all operations of Iran Air to the EU should be restricted. The commission hopes to visit Iran over the next few months to further look into the safety measures being taken by the country’s national airline.
As for airlines coming from the Philippines, the statement said that with the support of the Air Safety Committee the European Commission is forced to follow the principle of precaution and impose an operating ban on all air carriers licensed in the Philippines.
