Airlines Banned From European Airspace

The European Commission ("EC") has updated a list of airlines banned from flying into the European Union's ("EU") member countries for safety concern. Meaning to say EU is afraid that one of these airlines may crash in EU's land????

How does EC assess these airlines? The EC is very careful with such blacklisting and issued a legal notice to cover themselves:-

LEGAL NOTICE
The civil aviation authorities of Member States of the European Community are only able to inspect aircraft of airlines that operate flights to and from Community airports; and in view of the random nature of such inspections, it is not possible to check all aircraft that land at each Community airport. The fact that an airline is not included in the Community list does not, therefore, automatically mean that it meets the applicable safety standards.

Where an airline which is currently included in the Community list deems itself to be in conformity with the necessary technical elements and requirements prescribed by the applicable international safety standards, it may request the Commission to commence the procedure for its removal from the list.

The airlines that have been blacklisted could be read in List of airlines banned within the EU.

Yea, this is real. The list is mainly to make sure airlines maintain their planes and not put human life at risk.
