Avior Airlines banned from EU skies

Venezuela’s Avior Airlines has been banned from European Union skies after a commission determined it no longer meets international safety standards.

The European Commission announced that Avior had been added to a list of international airlines prohibited from flying within the union because the European Aviation Safety Agency detected unaddressed safety deficiencies.

The Venezuelan airline is one of a handful still offering international flight destinations as major carriers like United and Delta halt operations in the crisis-ridden nation.
