January 24 - After successfully concluding the required audits, Cargolux Airlines International S.A. has renewed its IOSA (International Air Transport Association - IATA - Operational Safety Audit) certificate for the second time.
The IOSA program was initiated in 2003; today, it is an internationally recognised and accepted evaluation system, designed to assess the operational management and safety systems of an airline. The registration is of high importance to Cargolux, not only due to the fact that IOSA registration is a prerequisite to keep IATA membership, but also because it helps the company to take its quality and safety standards to an even higher level. It is also a requirement to operate in a growing number of countries.
"Our service quality and safety standards keep attracting our customers and therefore we welcome any opportunity for continuous improvement," Cargolux president and ceo Frank Reimen said. "Our IOSA registration underlines our strong commitment to the safety of our operations and the safety standards of the airline industry," he added. The renewal audit covered all of the company's operations, including Flight Dispatch, Maintenance, Cabin, Ground Service, Cargo Handling, Quality, Security and Organisation, with a key emphasis on safety.
The IOSA certificate audit is performed by independent bodies under the supervision of IATA and has to be renewed every two years.
