Oman Air passes safety audit of IATA

Oman Air, the national carrier of the Sultanate of Oman, has announced it has passed the IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA), the company said.

In August 2018, Oman Air was subject to an IOSA Renewal Audit, conducted by Aviation Quality Services, an audit organisation, accredited by IATA. IOSA seeks to ensure that airlines are compliant with safety requirements and recommended practices determined by IATA. The programme is an internationally recognised and accepted evaluation system designed to assess the operational management and control systems of an airline.

Oman Air met all the required standards, passing with the highest possible findings after the IOSA team examined the airline´s safety procedures and processes in detail. The Oman Air Operations and Maintenance teams worked together in unison, guided by Quality Assurance Operations.

IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) is mandatory for all IATA member airlines, reviewing standards in eight operational areas, including operations management, flight operations, cabin operations, maintenance, flight dispatch, ground and cargo operations and security.
