JetBlue Airways has joined the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and successfully completed the IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) thus achieving IOSA registration.
IOSA sets aviation’s global standard for quality, safety and operations performance. Joining the IOSA Registry will expand JetBlue’s partnership opportunities with other world-class airlines, proving that the carrier meets the highest industry benchmarks. 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.
"Safety has always been our number one value, and achieving IOSA registration shows that our own rigorous guidelines rate with the strictest standards in the world," remarked Dave Barger, CEO of JetBlue Airways. "Successfully completing the audit is a testament to the work put in every day by our 12,000 crewmembers keeping customers and each other safe."
