The European Union on Wednesday banned 93 mostly African-based airlines from landing at European airports, declaring them unsafe as part of a new blacklist of airlines that fail to meet international safety standards.

The EU list, compiled by the 25 EU countries, includes both cargo and passenger carriers from countries such as Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Sierra Leone, Swaziland and Liberia that are judged to have an “inadequate system for regulatory oversight” on safety standards.
