Cargolux passes 4th IOSA renewal audit
OCT 3, 2015: Cargolux Airlines announced that the airline has passed its fourth IOSA renewal audit with an exceptionally good result. The IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) program is an internationally recognized and accepted evaluation system designed to assess the operational management and control systems of an airline.
During the five-day renewal audit, five auditors audited Cargolux on about 850 different standards. In preparation for this, a team of 20 people from all concerned divisions worked for about three months to achieve the exceptional result.
As a member of IATA, Cargolux, like any other IATA member airline, has to pass an initial IOSA audit and subsequent renewal audits every two years. This ensures a constant enhancement of aviation safety and is recognized by insurers and a number of aviation authorities, such as the FAA, across the world.
‘This fantastic result is due to the great work that everyone in Cargolux has put into this IOSA, even during some very stressful moments’, says Graham Hurst, Cargolux V.P. Quality & Compliance Monitoring. ‘The Quality & Compliance Monitoring staff, the CV IOSA coordinators, the Divisional IOSA representatives, and all our people who also prepared the meeting rooms and preparations for ever changing logistics, and all who were audited or contributed to the preparation before and during the audit. They all gave their all! Thank you for your persistence and dedication in making this fantastic result possible’.
