GCAA WARNS IT WILL BAN AIRLINES WITH POOR SAFETY RECORDS

The UAE’s General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) has stated that it will take legal action against air operators for breach of rules and for poor fleet maintenance.

The Authority has banned some 41 operators in two years from entering the UAE airspace due to a violation of air safety rules, including violations by the pilots, engineers and support crews who hold permits. The violations include forgery of permits and for alcohol levels in the blood while on duty, especially the pilots.

The aircraft banned by the Authority include a DC8-63F whose owners were held up for undertaking maintenance at a UAE airport hangar without obtaining a licence from the GCAA. A 747-200 was also specifically banned for violating UAE airspace regulations.
