They currently do not offer services from European countries, however you can now rest assured that they do meet European safety standards. You can confidently book your Asian connecting flights with these carriers.

They join Indonesia Air Asia and Indonesia flag carrier Garuda Indonesia who were removed from the list in 2009 and 2010 respectfully.

Garuda Indonesia have also announced that they have been upgraded from a category 2 to a category 1 and will once more be able to fly to the United States.
