AirAsia X, an affiliate of the AirAsia Group, received its second IATAOperational Safety Audit Certification (IOSA), confirming that the airline is in compliance with the international operational safety standards.

IATA’s Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) program is an internationally recognized and accepted evaluation system designed to access the operational management and control systems of an airline.

In order to receive the certificate, AirAsia X successfully completed the operational safety audit covering all aspects of the carrier’s activities, namely; Organization and Management System, Flight Operations, Operational Control and Flight Dispatch, Aircraft Engineering & Maintenance, Cabin Operations, Ground Handling Operations, Cargo Operations and Security Management. The audit is performed every two years. New certificate is valid until 11th April, 2018.

CEO of AirAsia X Berhad, Benyamin Ismail said, “Safety is a core value that we at AirAsia X are committed to. We are very pleased to receive the IOSA registration for the second time and it’s a very proud moment for us to have demonstrated that AirAsia X operates according to the most stringent standards in the industry. This accomplishment will not be possible without the dedication and hard work of our Allstars from various departments who worked tirelessly in preparing, reviewing and improving all of our operational processes and implementation. This achievement is also a testament to our belief in safety culture and put us on par with the largest and the best airlines of the world.”

The airline joined IATA’s IOSA Registry on 16th April 2015, becoming the second airline in Malaysia to have successfully passed the full international safety and compliance standards.
