  1. In the last November 2017 update, 178 airlines from various countries were included in this list. Indonesia leads with the largest number of 55 airlines.
  2. However, from the latest information on December 2, 2020, Indonesia does not have airlines that are prohibited from entering the European Union.

In addition to security issues, the spread of the corona virus which is increasingly out of control in Indonesia is also the reason why these 59 countries prohibit Indonesian citizens who want to visit their country.
