Guppy, you might be right in principle, however the regulations governing GA and airlines are different, at least if mentioned GA aviation is not working under an AOC and of course everything just applicable in europe (JAR), dunno enough about the rules in other parts to comment about that.

We had the problem with a small business jet we operated some years ago (yes, we are an airline, but still can operate small stuff), it couldn't operate under JAR OPS rules into a certain airport, but it could quite happily outside of JAR OPS. To be able to fly into the home airport of the ownder of that jet we had to get a special permission that we could fly without having to factor the landing distance according to JAR OPS, as a result it was only allowed to fly there for private flights of the owner but not for normal charter operation.
