Airline   After years of work and European technical assistance

The European Commission updated the EU Air Safety List, the list of airlines that do not meet international safety standards.

All air carriers from Kazakhstan were removed from the list, while Iran Aseman Airlines was added.

Commissioner for Transport Violeta Bulc said: "The EU Air Safety list is one of our main instruments to continuously offer the highest level of air safety to Europeans.

"I am particularly glad that after years of work and European technical assistance, we are today able to clear all Kazakh air carriers.

This also is a positive signal for all the countries that remain on the list. It shows that work and cooperation pay off. The Commission and the European Aviation Safety Agency are ready to assist."

The EU Air Safety List not only helps to maintain high levels of safety in the EU, but it also helps affected countries to improve their levels of safety, in order for them to eventually be taken off the list.

In addition, the EU Air Safety List has become a major preventive tool, as it motivates countries with safety problems to act upon them before a ban under the EU Air Safety List would become necessary.
