European Union Adds Most of Iran Air’s Jets to Blacklist
06-Jul-2010 (one comment)

The European Union on Tuesday banned most of Iran Air’s jets from European airports, saying that the decision was based on safety concerns, and not because of the sanctions against Iran approved last month by the United Nations Security Council over its nuclear program.

After a safety audit, the union, a 27-nation bloc, decided to place Iran Air’s Boeing 727s and 747s, along with its Airbus 320s, on the organization’s blacklist, said a Transport Commission spokeswoman, Helen Kearns. The list consists of carriers that the union has determined do not meet international safety standards.
