Airlines are banned or have restricted rights only when there are data demonstrating that they infringed specific regulation criteria. These criteria are based on the results of ground controlled performed on European airports, on the usage of aircraft badly maintained, dilapidated or obsolete, on the airline incapability to correct default identified during inspections and on the incapacity of the Authority in charge of the airline oversight and surveillance to perform this task.
