The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has lifted the ban on flying with Super Puma helicopters.

The Super Puma helicopter, type EC225, was involved in the tragic accident in Turøy on April 29th 2016, which led to the dead of 13 people. After the accident, EASA created a ban on Super Puma helicopters to fly over Europe.

According to a statement made by EASA this Friday, the ban is now lifted. The Norwegian Aviation Authorities choose, however, to maintain a flight ban until further notice, like the British Aviation Authorities did as well. The Norwegian organization will come out with its own press release later.
