On Sep. 2, 2010, the European Commission has  updated the list of airlines banned in the European Union to impose an operating ban on one air carrier from Ghana and to place operating restrictions on another air carrier from that country.

Commission Vice-President Siim Kallas, responsible for mobility and transport, said: "We cannot afford any compromi se in air safety. Where we have evidence that air carriers are not performing safe operations or where the regulatory authorities fail in their obligation to enforce the safety standards we must act to guarantee to exclude any risks to safety."

The new list replaces the previous one and can already be consulted on the Commission’s website.
