Information for passengers: air carriers’ identity

SUMMARY OF:

Regulation (EC) No 2111/2005 — list of air carriers subject to an operating ban within the EU and the identity of operating air carriers

SUMMARY

WHAT DOES THIS REGULATION DO?

KEY POINTS

In December 2015, the Commission published a comprehensive aviation strategy for Europe. In addition to looking to improve the sector’s competitiveness, the strategy emphasises the importance of maintaining high safety and security standards and protection of passengers’ rights.

By November 2016, each non-EU airline flying to the EU will need to have a single air safety authorisation issued by the European Aviation Safety Agency. These authorisations validate airlines’ compliance with international safety standards and are valid throughout the EU.

FROM WHEN DOES THE REGULATION APPLY?

It applies from 16 January 2006.
