Six aircraft operators have been banned from flying within UAE air space due to safety regulations, Arabic daily Emarat Alyoum has reported.

The civil aviation authority also banned nine specific aircraft from entering the country’s air space after they were deemed unsafe.

The authority made the decisions last year following 322 safety inspections, the daily said.

Details of the safety infringements or the company names were not revealed.

More than 400 foreign airliners operate in the UAE, servicing 200 destinations. The country’s commercial passenger traffic grew by about 20 percent last year, the civil aviation authority said.
