Aviation: passengers, airlines and airports

Flying is now no longer special. You can buy all the cheap tickets on different airlines, but also through tour operators.

These do not appear on the blacklist, because of their experience and safety.

The companies that aircraft did not meet the requirements, will be blacklisted. The EU has its own list, as the United States, Belgium, France, Great Britain and Switzerland. The EU has nearly 100 companies on this list and it is a few times a year updated.
