Process Initiated to Delist Nepal Aviation from EU Blacklist

July 26, 2017

Following the removal of Nepal’s aviation sector from the International Civil Aviation Organization’s (ICAO) significant safety concern (SSC) list, Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN) has launched the process to delist the sector from the European Union’s (EU) aviation safety blacklist. The blacklisting by EU in December 2013, which followed the introduction of the SSC list by ICAO, prohibited Nepali airlines from flying over European skies.

CAAN Director General Sanjib Gautam said that CAAN would send a communication in this regard to the EU in a couple of days. He added that the EU aviation safety committee, representing all the 26 member countries, would decide upon the issue during its meeting in November.
