Muscat, Oman Air, the national carrier of the
Sultanate of Oman, has successfully passed the IATA Operational
Safety Audit (IOSA) once again.
From 26 to 30 August, Oman Air was subject to an IOSA Renewal
Audit, conducted by Aviation Quality Services, an audit organisation,
accredited by IATA.
IOSA seeks to ensure that airlines are compliant with safety
requirements and recommended practices determined by IATA; the
programme is an internationally recognised and accepted evaluation
system designed to assess the operational management and control
systems of an airline.
Oman Air met all the required standards, passing with the highest
possible findings after the IOSA team examined the airline’s safety
procedures and processes in detail. The Oman Air Operations and
Maintenance teams worked together in unison, guided by Quality
Assurance Operations, and led by VPQAO, Capt. Salim Ali al-Rashdi,
to achieve a successful IOSA Audit.
Eng. Abdulaziz Al Raisi, Oman Air CEO said: The IOSA is probably
the most important examination of our operations and the results are
testament to our all-encompassing safety culture. I can say with
confidence that Oman Air staff will continue to implement and deliver
the most efficient of safety procedures in all their operations to ensure
we remain industry leaders in this field.
IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) is mandatory for all IATA
member airlines, reviewing standards in eight operational areas,
including operations management, flight operations, cabin operations,
maintenance, flight dispatch, ground and cargo operations and
