The lifting of a ban by the European Union (EU) on Indonesian airlines flying through European airspace demonstrates Indonesia’s significant improvement in the field of aviation safety and may lead to more airlines being taken off the list soon, the Jakarta Post quoted European Union’s (EU) envoy as saying.

Julian Wilson, the EU ambassador to Indonesia, said on Wednesday that as Indonesia continued its efforts to improve air safety, at least two more of its airlines could meet the safety standards required by Europe and be removed from the list of banned carriers in the EU.

“It has been confirmed that Indonesia has made a great achievement by improving its air safety. I think at least two more airlines will be removed from the EU ban in the near future. Very possibly, [they will be] Lion Air and Air Asia Indonesia,” Wilson told The Jakarta Post in an interview.

He said the EU would consider taking other Indonesian airlines off the list when the Indonesian directorate general of civil aviation (DGCA) recertified them.
