The European Union has called on both Spain and Germany to improve their security of their national airlines, with the European Commission saying it has detected ‘high levels of failure’ in ramp inspections of planes in both countries.

It considers that Spain is showing signs of an ‘early alert’ although it says it is satisfied with the corrective measures which have been adopted so far. In Germany concern is expressed for the lack of resources available to security personnel.

Meanwhile in the new EU blacklist of airlines which are not allowed to fly in the EU, are all the companies from Mozambique, and two planes from Air Madagascar. A prohibition on four Indonesian and one Ukrainian airline has now been lifted.
