Jazeera obtains IATA operating certification
Jazeera Airways has passed the IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA), the airline industry’s benchmark operational safety audit.
IOSA’s six-month evaluation of Jazeera Airways’ operational and control systems showed that the airline conforms with the standards set by IOSA, in areas including airports, flight deck, cabins, maintenance and engineering.
Jazeera Airways’ VP of maintenance and engineering, Abdullah Al Hudaid, said: “Jazeera Airways has passed a significant milestone with this internationally-recognised accreditation. This is a testament that Jazeera Airways is up there with the best airlines in the world.”
Initiated in 2001, the IOSA audit is an international evaluation system precursor for airlines to become an IATA member.
IATA provides an airline with a wide-range of operational benefits and opportunities, including code sharing with other IATA member airlines, pooling maintenance and engineering activities, and accessing certain markets limited to IATA member airlines.
There are currently 357 airlines registered in IOSA alongside Jazeera Airways.
