Danish travel companies offer customers travelling in the Philippines flights on airlines that do not meet EU safety requirements. A spokesperson from the national transportation authority, Trafikstyrelsen, said that while the companies on the blacklist may not have had an accident, they have not proven that they are safe to fly. The travel agents say that they are uncomfortable recommending the blacklisted flights, but that almost no domestic airlines in the Philippines live up to EU criteria. They say it is their policy to warn customers and offer them alternatives. Although the information is available on the travel companies' websites, a spokesperson couldn’t say with certainty that every customer received a personal warning during the busy travel seasons. – Jyllands-Posten
