Qatar Airways receives special award for its contribution to the IOSA programme

Posted 19 April 2018 · Add Comment

Qatar Airways was again recognised for its outstanding safety performance record at the International Air Transport Association (IATA) Safety and Flight Operations Conference 2018, held in Montreal this week.

 

The airline was the first to complete the Safety Audit Programme

(IOSA) in 2003, doing so voluntarily and achieving 100 per cent compliance, before the safety programme became mandatory for all IATA member airlines.

In a fitting tribute to the 15 year anniversary of the IOSA programme, IATA used the conference as the ideal opportunity to emphasise the programme’s importance by presenting the Special Recognition Award to Qatar Airways, the inaugural IOSA programme airline.

Qatar Airways Senior Vice President Group Safety and Security,  Ashish Jain, said: "We are delighted to receive this special award that recognises our contribution to the success of the IOSA programme. We were the first airline audited under the program in 2003, and we remain committed to the ideals that it promotes in the aviation industry. It is vital that IOSA is universally embraced as the global benchmark, aviation safety and security compliance standard. I especially thank my colleagues who have maintained our unblemished safety and security record throughout the 15 years of IOSA, and we acknowledge them at this conference.”

The IOSA programme was introduced to enable 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.
