Cargolux renews IATA’s ‘Enhanced IOSA’ certification
October 23, 2017: Luxembourg-based all cargo airline Cargolux Airlines has passed its sixth IOSA audit with an exceptionally good result.
During the five-day renewal audit, five auditors audited Cargolux on about 900 different standards. In preparation for this, a team of 20 people from all concerned divisions worked throughout the year to achieve this exceptional result.
The airline passed its initial audit in 2007. 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 the result of the efforts and endless commitment that the Cargolux staff has put into this ‘Enhanced IOSA’ renewal audit, even during some very stressful moments,” says Graham Hurst, Cargolux vice president Quality & Compliance Monitoring.
The IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) programme is an internationally recognised and accepted evaluation system designed to assess the operational management and control systems of an airline.
