European Commission adds two Ghanaian airlines to banned list

European Commission announced (02-Sep-2010) the addition of Ghana-based Meridian Airways and Airlift International to its list of air carriers subject to an operating ban. Meridian Airways achieved a series of poor results from inspections involving their aircraft and facilities used by the carrier in the EU. Airlift International was inspected in a Member State and the results indicated a standard well below that required. The Air Safety Committee unanimously supported the introduction of operating restrictions on Airlift International to exclude from operations into the EU the inspected aircraft, plus two others currently in storage. This leaves the company with one aircraft still permitted to operate into the EU. [more]
