Aeroflot, All Nippon Airways, Delta, Emirates, Etihad and United were among the first airlines to receive EASA’s new single air safety authorisation.

The new certification replaces the various compliance schemes of the 32 EASA member states, enabling operators from outside the EU to undergo one compliance process.

By 2016 all non-EU airlines will have to hold the new EU-wide authorisation, and last week (July 2) EASA issued the first 22 authorisations.

EU commissioner for transport Violeta Bulc said: “The ‘one-stop-shop’ approach means cutting red-tape and reducing administrative costs for airlines.”

In total 700 carriers from more than 100 countries have applied to be authorised to fly in EU.
