Yemenia Airways was not included on a new European Union aviation blacklist released on Tuesday despite safety concerns raised since a June 30 crash into the Indian Ocean that killed 152 people.

AFP - Yemen airline Yemenia was not included on a new European Union aviation blacklist released Tuesday, despite safety concerns raised since 152 people were killed when one of its jets crashed last month.
   
"Work is still ongoing with Yemenia, with meetings planned, to understand what the situation is," said a transport spokesman at the European Commission, which manages the list.
   
Safety deficiencies saw all airlines from Zambia and Kazakhstan added to the list, which contains some 200 airlines or firms which are either banned from operating in Europe or only allowed under restrictions.
