The International Air Transport Association (IATA) announced that Air Transat has become the first airline to renew its IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) registration under the Enhanced IOSA audit process.
Enhanced IOSA introduces the following:
In June 2013, the IATA Board of Governors mandated the implementation of Enhanced IOSA for all IOSA renewal audits as of September 2015. Until then, airlines can opt to undergo their renewal audits under the Enhanced IOSA audit process on a voluntary basis.
“Enhanced IOSA adds an important dimension that focuses on the airline’s self-auditing and quality assurance programs. IATA will work with all airlines to ensure implementation of Enhanced IOSA by the set deadline,” said Matschnigg.
In 2013, IATA will conduct three Enhanced IOSA regional workshops – Beijing, Montreal and Bucharest – for IOSA registered airlines. Further workshops will be held in other regions in 2014.
