Bulgaria's Transport Ministry announced that only 2 of the 93 companies banned by the EU from operating in its sky have flown to Bulgaria.

"GST Aero" from Kazakhstan and "Reem Air" from Kyrgyzstan have both signed trade agreements with Bulgarian air carriers for cargo transfer. The two companies have presented all the papers required by local laws, the ministry announced, and no violations were noted.

The EU put out Wednesday a list of 93 airlines that are now banned from flying over its country members, because they fail to meet international standards. Most of those airlines are Africa-based. There are some, however from Afghanistan, Kyrgyzstan, Thailand, and North Korea.
