Europe Bans Flying Coffins

A blacklist of unsafe airlines was published by the European Commission on Wednesday. 92 companies face a complete ban and 3 will have their operations restricted. From now on, airlines banned by one member state will be banned in the whole European Union.
Due to a series of recent safety concerns, the European Commission decided to draw up a list to keep dubious airlines out of European airspace. The EU blacklist will not only prevent unsafe airlines from operating in Europe, through its wide publication, the Commission hopes also to dissuade the public from travelling with these airlines in other parts of the world.
