France and Belgium released a list of airlines they have blacklisted from flying to their countries. The only surprise on the list is tiny US Virgin Islands based Air St. Thomas. No reason is given for the ban. In case you were wondering, here are the two lists:
France: Air Koryo of North Korea;
Air St Thomas of the US Virgin Islands; International Air Services of
Liberia; Thailand’s Phuket Airlines; and Linhas Aereas de Mocambique
and Transairways, both from Mozambique.
Belgium: Africa Lines of the Central African Republic; Air
Memphis from Egypt; Air Van Airlines of Armenia; Central Air Express
from Congo; Libya’s ICTTPW; International Air Tours Limited from
Nigeria; Johnsons Air Limited of Ghana; Silverback Cargo Freighters
from Rwanda; and South Airlines of Ukraine.
