IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) Registration
Jet Airways (India) Ltd. has earned the distinction of receiving the IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) Registration. The airline has successfully completed the Operational Safety Audit and has entered into the IOSA Registry.
IOSA is a quality audit programme under the continuing stewardship of IATA (International Air Transport Association). It is a globally recognised and accepted benchmarking and evaluation system for assessing the operational management and control systems of an airline. IOSA uses internationally accepted quality audit principles that ensure the audits are conducted in a standardised and consistent manner. Airlines use IOSA Registration for a variety of benefits, which include improving Safety within the airline, code share facilitation, and audit reduction.
With the implementation and international acceptance of IOSA the industry has achieved the benefits of cost-efficiency through a significant reduction in audits. The focus and scope of the IOSA audit is on proper documentation and implementation of standard operating procedures in various operational areas of the airline such as, Flight Operations, Aircraft Engineering and Maintenance, Flight Dispatch, Cabin Operations, Security, Ground Handling and Cargo.
