Notice for flights departing European Union

Carriers banned from operating in the European Union

The European Commission established a list of air carriers that do not meet their relevant safety standards and are banned from operating in the EU. You may review the list of carriers on the European Commission's website.

European Union rules on the importation of products of animal origin

Please be advised that bringing meat and dairy products into the European Union is generally prohibited by local law. Restrictions also apply to many other food items and plants. If you have any questions about this restriction, please contact a customs official upon arrival. Failure to declare food, dairy, and plant items may result in delays, fines, or prosecution by the customs authority in the EU.
