Bangladesh out of unsafe civil aviation list

Dhaka, Jul 21 (bdnews24.com) – Bangladesh has come out of the list of countries with unsafe civil aviation system, three years after being 'blacklisted' by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). 

 Director of the Safety and Regulation Division Wing Commander S M Nazmul Anam told bdnews24.com that they got the message of delisting on Saturday.

Bangladesh had been on the list of Significant Safety Concern (SSC) countries since Jun 2009 when an ICAO's audit had found that air operations were not being conducted in accordance with the international norms.

Due to the ignominious label, officials said, no new Bangladeshi aircraft was permitted to fly international in the last three years.
