Med-View Airlines, a Nigerian airline, has been barred from flying into Europe. The airline was barred for safety reasons and listed under the EU Air Safety List Annex A, which includes other airlines banned from the continent.
A total of 181 airlines were barred from flying into Europe, with 174 airlines barred due to safety oversight by aviation authorities in their home countries.
The EU Air Safety List is a list of non-European airlines that do not meet international safety standards, and are therefore subject to an operating ban or operational restrictions within the European Union.
The PUNCH reports that the United Kingdom authorities would visit Nigeria to carry out safety audit on the airline.
