Smartwings airline has successfully passed another stringent audit of operational safety by The International Air Transport Association (IATA). The IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) Program is designed to assess the operational management and control systems of an airline. Airlines registered for the IOSA program are required to prove their compliance with strict international operational safety and quality standards every two years. The in-depth assessment evaluated 900 operational parameters.
“Smartwings has always supported meticulous implementation of safety regulations and complies with IATA-defined criteria. The company has completed this year’s IOSA audit with an excellent result,” says Roman Vik, CEO, Smartwings.
The IOSA audit at Smartwings has been carried out by ARGUS Partners and Resources for Operational Safety, an accredited US-based audit organization. A team of 5 auditors assessed more than 900 parameters in eight audited areas with a focus on flight operations, operational management, aircraft maintenance, crew training, ground operations, cargo transport, security and protection against misconduct, and corporate governance.
A valid IOSA registration is recognized in the air transport industry as a proof of reliability and high safety of an air carrier.
