The EU banned most of Iran Air's jets from flying to Europe because of safety concerns, emphasizing Tuesday that the move was not related to U.N. sanctions against Iran over its nuclear program.

The 27-nation bloc also relaxed restrictions on two airlines from Indonesia and put a Suriname airline on its blacklist of carriers the EU believes do not meet international safety standards.The list of 278 airlines — mostly small operations from Africa and Asia — was established in 2006 and is updated regularly.
