TAG Aviation’s Fixed-Base Operations (FBOs) based in Geneva and Sion have been awarded the International Standard for Business Aircraft Handling (IS-BAH) Stage 1 certificate of registration from the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC) for their rigorous safety and quality ground handling operations. 
The IS-BAH standard, which focuses on the refueling, ground handling and storing of general aviation aircraft, is a set of global industry’s best practices in safety management and risk mitigation for business aviation ground handlers.  

The accreditation process involves a complete audit of the FBO’s safety management systems, emergency and security procedures, organisational structure, training protocols and operating procedures. Certificates of registration are issued by IBAC to FBOs that have successfully demonstrated conformity to the industry’s best practice standards through completion of a three stage-external audit by the IBAC accredited auditor. 
"Congratulations to TAG Aviation on their achievement of successfully implementing, through to registration, the IS-BAH at both their Geneva and Sion locations. IBAC thanks the management and the teams involved within TAG Aviation's FBO network for their continued commitment to adopting the industry Standards with positive support,” said Terry Yeomans, IS-BAH Program Director for the IBAC. 
Ilias Ziragachi, TAG Aviation’s Handling Manager for Sion said, “The IS-BAH registration process represents months of hard work for the management teams of both stations. Receipt of the IS-BAH certification is a significant milestone and it is very important we continue to formalise our continuous improvement and build upon the safety culture.” 
“We are very proud to have been awarded such coveted industry recognition”, said Erturk Yildiz, TAG Aviation’s Handling Manager for Geneva. “By adopting the IS-BAH best code of practices, TAG Aviation’s Geneva and Sion FBO’s and ground handling teams have demonstrated their commitment to providing safety excellence and set up a strong and solid Safety Management System that adds important value for our clients.” 
TAG Madrid’s FBO and handling station is currently working towards implementing ISBAH accreditation to harmonise all TAG’s FBOs under the industry-developed best practice programme.
