Proflight Zambia has completed the second of three workshops under the International Air Transport Association (IATA) Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) initiative in the airline’s latest step towards the top safety accreditation standard in the global aviation industry.
IOSA is an internationally recognised and accepted evaluation system designed to assess the operational management and control systems of an airline. It is based on industry proven quality audit principles and designed to ensure that each audit is conducted in a standardised manner in order to achieve consistent results.
Only 300 airlines around the world have passed the IOSA audit. The IOSA audit is the standard of safety audit in the world. Attaining IATA accreditation will elevate Proflight’s safety credibility so that the airline can more easily agree code-share agreements with international airlines, and possibly make a case for exemption from the EU ban list on Zambia.
