October 23, 2017: Cargolux Airlines International SA announced that the airline had passed its sixth IOSA audit with an exceptionally good result. The IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) program is an internationally recognised and accepted evaluation system designed to assess the operational management and control systems of an airline.
During the five-day renewal audit, five auditors audited Cargolux on about 900 different standards. In preparation for this, a team of 20 people from all concerned divisions worked throughout the year to achieve this result.
As a member of IATA, Cargolux, like any other IATA member airline, has to pass an initial IOSA audit and subsequent renewal audits every two years. This ensures a constant enhancement of aviation safety and is recognised by insurers and a number of aviation authorities, such as the FAA, across the world.
“This fantastic result is the result of the efforts and endless commitment that the Cargolux staff has put into this ‘Enhanced IOSA’ renewal audit, even during some very stressful moments. The Quality and Compliance Monitoring staff, the Cargolux IOSA coordinators, the divisional IOSA representatives, and all who were audited or contributed to the preparation before and during the audit. They all gave their all! Thank you for your persistence and dedication in making this fantastic result possible,” says Graham Hurst, Cargolux VP Quality and Compliance Monitoring.
Cargolux passed its initial audit in 2007, and the IOSA registry underlines the airline’s strong commitment to the safety of its operations and the constant push for high safety standards within the airline industry.
