8 years on, Nepali airlines continue being prohibited from flying over European skies. The restriction on Nepali carriers to fly over Europe has extended yet again as Nepal fails to get its name removed from the biyearly published air safety list by the European Union (EU).

EU has been barring Nepali carriers to fly over the 26 blocs of Europe since 2013, stating that Nepal has yet to fulfill international air safety standards. EU has set a prerequisite requiring the civil aviation authority of Nepal to be divided into two bodies- service provider and regulator for getting Nepal removed from the air safety list of EU.

Air dynasty, Altitude Air, Buddha Air, Fishtail Air, Heli Everest, Himalayan Airlines, Kailash Helicopter Services, Makalu Air, Manang Air, Mountain Helicopters, Nepal airlines, Prabhu Helicopters, Saurya Airlines, Shree Airlines, Simrik Air, Sita Air, Summit Air, Yeti Airlines, and Tara air have all been listed in the EU air safety list.

The EU air safety list sets a minimum requirement for air safety and is accepted internationally. Many developed countries take it as a reference for determining their air safety standards as well as that of other countries.

Nepal is desperately trying to get itself removed from the list as being blacklisted has caused other countries to lose faith in the safety standards of Nepali carriers.

 Nepal Airlines has faced the direct and significant effect of this issue as many developed countries where Nepal airlines had been preparing to fly have once again shown hesitance to allow its operation.
