Posted 24 July 2017 · Add Comment

Qatar Airways has achieved 100 per cent compliance in the IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA), verifying its status as one of the world's safest and most secure airlines.

 

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker said, "At Qatar Airways, safety and security are always our highest priorities. They are expressed in everything we do. We were pleased to be the first airline audited under the IOSA program in 2003, and we remain very proud of maintaining our unblemished safety and security record yet again in 2017. This achievement provides continued assurance that Qatar Airways meets world class safety and security standards when measured against IATA’s global benchmark. I congratulate all our staff on this achievement, which is recognition of their dedication to the safety and security of our passengers.”

The IOSA programme enables airlines to review their safety processes using a worldwide standard that has become the single internationally-accepted safety and security audit process for airlines. Under IOSA, accredited auditors assess an airline's operational management and control systems, including the areas of corporate organisation and management, flight operations, operational control, flight dispatch, aircraft engineering and maintenance, cabin operations, aircraft ground handling, cargo operations and operational security.
