AirBridgeCargo renews IOSA operational safety certification

AirBridgeCargo renews IOSA operational safety certification

AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC) has successfully passed the audit procedures for compliance with the International Air Transport Association’s (IATA) Operational Safety Audit (IOSA), renewing its certification for a further two years.

The carrier says the extension of the IOSA certificate acknowledged its conformance with the highest global air safety requirements and follows a five-day inspection by independent auditors.

This process reviewed AirBridgeCargo’s flight performance, operating control, maintenance and ground handling, aviation security and quality management. The audit itself consisted of three stages: preparation, audit and rectifying of deficiencies.

The first stage is constantly being conducted by AirBridgeCargo on a daily basis. The second stage was conducted by a French audit company accredited by IATA to perform such procedures.

During the inspection, ABC’s compliance with over 800 IOSA standards was checked and the final results sent to IATA for evaluation. This resulted in the association renewing ABC’s IOSA certificate until November 2017.

“IOSA is a global air industry benchmark for quality and safety. This certificate is a further demonstration of AirBridgeCargo Airlines’ commitment to providing reliable cargo services to its international customers,” says ABC’s executive president, Denis Ilin.
