Frontier Airlines reports its successful completion of the International Air Transport Association’s (IATA) Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) and achievement of IOSA registration.
IOSA sets aviation’s global standard for quality, safety and operations performance. Joining the IOSA Registry is official recognition that the carrier meets or exceeds industry standards that are the strictest in the world. The audit encompasses eight areas: corporate organisation and management; flight operations; operational control/flight dispatch; aircraft engineering and maintenance; cabin operations, aircraft ground handling, cargo operations, and operational security.
"I can’t overstate the importance of attaining IOSA registration,” commented Republic Airways chief operating officer Wayne Heller. “Safety has always been our most important operating goal. Achieving IOSA registration is a tribute to the efforts every one of Frontier’s more than 5,000 employees put forth every day on every flight and for every guest who flies on Frontier Airlines. It is proof positive that the guidelines we have operated under for years meet or exceed the strictest standards in the world."
