At transavia.com, safety comes first. That is why adhering to the highest flight safety requirements is part of our company’s policy. transavia.com has been awarded an EU-OPS Air Operator Certificate, proving that we operate in accordance with the latest EU flight safety regulations.
EU-OPS regulations have replaced the JAR-OPS regulations on 16 July 2008 and are applicable to all European Union countries. In 1998, transavia.com was the first European airline with JAR-OPS recognition. Today, we have adapted our processes and operational procedures and presented them to the Dutch inspection authorities (Inspectie Verkeer en Waterstaat) well in advance of EU-OPS becoming applicable.
EU Regulation: list of unsafe airlines
The European Union has drawn up a list of unsafe airlines that have been banned within the whole EU. It is mandatory for transavia.com to inform you about this list. Blacklisted are airlines that are banned from operating in European airspace and airlines which are restricted to operating in Europe under specific conditions. This list allows passengers and travel agents to choose their airline, which will put pressure on the airlines concerned to improve their safety levels.
For the list of airlines that are under strict supervision, go to the European Commission’s website at http://ec.europa.eu/transport/air . The list is evaluated at least every three months, and altered when necessary.
