The infamous European "blacklist" of companies that do not comply with European regulations with regards to aviation safety, which should be reviewed every three months. The regulations are endorsed by the European Commission and is published in the Official Journal. The last review was carried out on the 12th Octobre 2006. Beware "blacklist" does not necessarily include all airlines having had accidents. The blacklist includes the airlines that do not comply with European legislation.
Every country within the union has a competent authority to make sure the regulations are respected.
With regards to the analysis of the reasons for aviation accidents, a special service is dedicated to investigating these events.
2006 was a good year for air travel safety. According to statistics released by the American and Swiss organistaions 'Aviation Safety' and 'Aircraft crashes record office', there were only 27 fatal accidents and 888 victims out of 4 billion passengers travelling worldwide.
If we compare these figures with those of 2005, we can see a 10% increase in airport traffic, and an 11% decrease in the number of aircraft accidents. Almost all aircraft accidents resulting in deaths occur at takeoff or landing, and landings are twice as risky.
