The leading Czech business jet operator based in Prague and Bratislava has recently been awarded the second stage of the International Standard for Business Aircraft Handling (IS-BAH) certificate. The company is the first and only holder of this certificate in the Czech Republic.

It’s a great honour to become the first and only holder of IS-BAH stage II certification in the Czech Republic. Last year, our Prague handling achieved two significant milestones: ten years on the market and 20 000 rotations handled. Along with achieving IS-BAH stage II, we are re-affirming our efforts to deliver safety excellence and top-quality services,” said Jan Kralik, Chief Operating Officer and Accountable Manager at ABS Jets.
