While the accident investigation is not complete, EASA continues to implement robust and proven certification processes taking into account all available information. EASA proactively takes all necessary actions to mitigate identified possible contributory factors, in order to guarantee the safety of flights. These actions will also be adapted on the basis of operational feed-back, continuing studies and investigations or research activities undertaken by AIBN and relevant stakeholders.
