Jambojet, has added another feather to its cap after it was awarded the IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) Registration. The IOSA program is an internationally recognised and accepted evaluation system designed to assess the safety, operational management and control systems of an airline.
The regional low cost airline, is the only operator after Kenya Airways to get IOSA registration in Kenya, reinforcing its commitment to maintain global safety standards in its operations.
Jambojet Chief Executive Officer, Mr Allan Kivaluka said that their customers need assurance that they can travel comfortably to their destinies hence safety is a requisite principle in the industry. Mr Kivaluka reiterated that they will ensure the best operational and efficiency standards as a growing regional airline.
Jambojet has successfully completed the meticulous audit which involves approximately 900 standards and recommended practise. The audit covers an exhaustive assessment of eight functional and operational areas which include organisation and management systems, flight operations, operational control, flight dispatch, aircraft engineering and maintenance, cabin operations, ground handling operations, and security management.
In addition, Mr. Kivaluka said that the IOSA audit involves a great deal of hard work as well as significant commitment of people, time and resources alongside congratulating Jambojet team for this achievement.
IOSA uses internationally recognized audit principles and is designed to conduct audits in a standardized and consistent manner. Airlines are re-evaluated every two years to ensure consistent innovation and observance to operational management, efficiency, air-worthiness and safety in the aviation industry.
This achievement comes after the airline was recently awarded the 2018 Bombardier Reliability Award for outstanding performance in dispatch reliability.
