Cargolux Airlines International announces that it has passed its seventh IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) with “exceptionally good results,” it says.
The IOSA programme is an internationally recognised and accepted evaluation system designed to assess the operational management and control systems of an airline.
As a member of IATA, Cargolux is required to pass an initial IOSA audit and subsequent renewal audits every two years. This ensures a constant enhancement of aviation safety and is recognised by insurers and several aviation authorities across the world. During the week-long renewal audit, five IOSA representatives assessed Cargolux on approximately 900 different standards.
“This fantastic result is the reflection of Cargolux’s commitment to high standards, and the efforts invested by the teams to continuously monitor and enhance procedures,” says Joeri Meeûs, director Quality & Compliance Monitoring.
“After years of mobilising teams and preparing the audits ahead of time, we have decided to adopt a smoother and more seamless approach. Since the last assessment, we have worked hard to integrate IOSA requirements into our daily processes to facilitate the audits, and ensure best practices are upheld throughout the year,” Meeûs adds.
The company’s outstanding achievement is the latest testament to the company’s effort to promote safety and compliance throughout the organisation, it says. Cargolux continuously monitors and assesses its procedures and policies to ensure quality service for its stakeholders. “As an airline with a global network, it is crucial for Cargolux to maintain safety as its top priority. These results serve as an important pillar of our ongoing journey towards increased safety and transparency,” the cargo carrier says.
