Community list “Black list”

A list of air carriers subject to an operating ban within the Community.

On 22 March 2006, the European Commission adopted a Community list, i.e. a list of air carriers which are subject to an operating ban within the Community. The above measure was taken on the basis of Regulation (EC) No 2111/2005 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 14 December 2005. Community list itself was then published by Commission Regulation (EC) No 474/2006 of 22 March 2006. Those regulations can be found, together with their amendments and other relevant regulations and information, in appropriate categories below.
