Ravn Air Group has announced that Ravn Alaska, has completed the initial onsite phase of the International Air Transport Association (IATA) Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) at the airline´s corporate headquarters in Anchorage, Alaska, the company said.
IOSA Registration represents the global standard for airline safety management and currently, 33 Airlines from the United States are registered under IOSA. Following completion of the IOSA certification process, Ravn will join IATA´s IOSA Registry, and, in doing so, it will become the first regional airline in the state of Alaska to receive IOSA registration.
IATA´s IOSA program is an internationally recognized and accepted evaluation system designed to assess an air carrier´s management systems, processes, and controls against approximately 900 standards and recommended practices across eight separate organizational disciplines. IOSA registration creates a standard that is comparable on a world-wide basis and is designed so that operational safety audits are conducted in a standardized and consistent manner.
