DOTC Statement on the Lifting of the EU Ban

“The European Commission (EC) has cleared the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP), which means that the EC may now rely on CAAP’s judgment regarding the safety standards being implemented by airlines used by EU citizens within the country. EU Ambassador Guy Ledoux attributes this development to the ‘improved safety oversight provided by competent authorities of the Philippines,’ which serves as an assurance to the public of the country’s compliance with international aviation safety standards. Philippine Airlines has also been allowed to operate flights to the EU again, while Cebu Pacific will have the opportunity to be reevaluated within six months. We anticipate this lifting of the EU ban to have a significant impact on the country’s economic thrust, and look forward to greater ties with the EU community.”

-DOTC Secretary Joseph Abaya
