Air Astana passes fifth IATA Operational Safety Audit

Kazakh flag carrier repeats success of 2007, 2009, 2011 and 2013
Air Astana has successfully undergone the International Air Transport Association’s Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) for the fifth time. The airline first passed the audit in 2007 and then again in 2009, 2011 and 2013.

During the latest audit in May 2015, documentation and implementation of nearly 1,000 IOSA standards were verified on all aspects of the airline’s activities. These included organization and management, flight operations, operational control and flight dispatch, engineering and maintenance, cabin operations, ground handling, cargo operation and security. The audit was undertaken by accredited IOSA audit organization “AQS”. It must be noted that since its third edition, the IOSA Standards Manual incorporates elements of the ICAO SMS Framework.

“We are pleased to have yet again successfully completed IATA’s Operational Safety Audit.”, said Peter Foster, President and CEO of Air Astana.

The next audit is scheduled to 2017.
