AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC) has successfully passed the audit procedures for compliance with the International Air Transport Association’s Operational Safety Audit (IOSA), renewing its certification for a further two years. Th e extension of the airline’s IOSA certificate acknowledges ABC’s conformance with the highest global air safety requirements and follows a five-day inspection by independent auditors.

Th is process reviewed AirBridgeCargo’s flight performance, operating control, maintenance and ground handling, aviation security and quality management.

Th e audit itself consisted of three stages: preparation, audit and rectifying of defi ciencies. Th e fi rst stage is constantly being conducted by AirBridgeCargo on a daily basis. Th e 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 fi nal results sent to IATA for evaluation. Th is resulted in the Association renewing ABC’s IOSA certificate until November 2017.

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