January 04, 2019: Air Peace has received its third International Air Transport Association Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) certification, the airline stated in a release.

The new certification had reaffirmed the airline’s commitment to safety and set the tone for the aviation sector in 2020. The development came on the heels of the airline’s announcement of flight operations from Nigerian cities Lagos to Ibadan, Kano, and Owerri.

The airline had set a record when it obtained its first IOSA barely two years into its operations and was, subsequently, inducted as a member of the International Air Transport Association (IATA).

Toyin Olajide, chief operating officer (COO), Air Peace, said that the certification was another feather added to the airline’s cap.

According to her, it confirms the airline’s uncompromising adherence to safety standards in line with global best practices.

“The exercise this time around was tougher than what obtained in previous years. But, we scaled through the hurdles of every phase of the certification process due to our unwavering drive to keep raising the bar in our operations,” she said.

She also reassured the flying public of the airline’s resolve to continue to comply with best safety standards and promised more seamless connectivity and an expanded route network in 2020.

Olajide applauded the IATA for its efforts at ensuring that stakeholders in the aviation sector globally comply with stipulated safety standards.

Also, the director of audit programmes at IATA, Catalin Cotrut, congratulated Air Peace on the successful completion of the audit.

IATA Operational Safety Audit Programme is an internationally recognised and accepted system designed to evaluate the operational management and control systems of airlines.
