In 2015, Wings of Lebanon was blacklisted by the European Commission, preventing the airline from flying within the European airspace. Following a revision of the blacklist on 14th June 2018, Wings of Lebanon remains as one of the airlines that are banned from Europe and Wings of Lebanon don't know why.
Speaking on the matter, Director General of Wings of Lebanon, Miran Farid, stated that he believes there's no reason why Wings of Lebanon should remain on the blacklist, the airline has invited the European Commission to do an inspection of the airline, but apparently they've declined. Farid added that although Wings of Lebanon were not taken off the blacklist in the recent revision, the airline is in talks to get a thorough inspection in November this year and remain confident that they'll be allowed to fly within Europe in 2019.
