    Commercial Airplane Overhaul

    On Tuesday, April 19th, the European Union (EU) updated its airline ban list. Two Air Madagascar aircrafts serving France and all Mozambican air carriers are now banned from the European airspace because they don’t meet the security standards required by the EU. However, on Wednesday, April 20th, the Malagasy airline announced in a statement that its commercial activity in Europe will continue through the purchase of seats and through aircraft chartering. Air Madagascar expects to endure its travels through the purchase of seats if Air Mauritius and Air Austral, both serving Madagascar.

    The new airline black-list bans 269 airlines from 20 countries including Afghanistan, Angola, Benin, Congo, DRC, Djibouti, Guinea, Gabon, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Kirghizia, Liberia, Mauritania, Mozambique, Philippines, Sierra Leone, Sao Tomé-et-Principe, Soudan, Swaziland and Zambia. Airlines on the list are believed not to meet safety standards. The European Union also gave Germany and Spain warnings about some of its airlines operating in the region.

    Passengers travelling with Air Madagascar or any Mozambican air carrier should check their flight status.
