NAS receives ISAGO certification for Abidjan operations
Aviation - National Aviation Services (NAS) has been awarded the IATA Safety Audit for Ground Operations (ISAGO) certification for its Abidjan operations.
Apr 04, 2017: National Aviation Services (NAS) has been awarded the IATA Safety Audit for Ground Operations (ISAGO) certification for its Abidjan operations. The NAS Abidjan ISAGO certification highlights the company’s ongoing commitment to safety and security across its network.
This is the most recent certification received by the company from IATA. In 2008, NAS was among the first ground handling providers in the world to receive an ISAGO certification for its Kuwait operation. Since then this certification has been renewed five times.
Hassan El Houry, NAS CEO, said, “As we continue our aggressive network growth and expand our portfolio of products and services, we remain focused on high levels of service quality, safety and security. We are pleased to have NAS Abidjan ISAGO certified and look forward to getting all our operations ISAGO certified in the coming future.”
In Abidjan, NAS provides ground handling services at the Félix-Houphouët-Boigny International Airport serving 25 airlines and an average of 5,000 passengers per day. These operations are reinforced with more than 800 employees and 300 pieces of ground support equipment.
Amadou Kone, minister of transport, Cote d’Ivoire, said, “ This is the first time that the Felix Houphouet Boigny airport in Abidjan is recognised by ISAGO. This also grows the very short list of West African airports handled by an ISAGO certified handling company. I urge you to remain focused on high-quality services. This is how we can together embrace, the challenge of making our airport the Hub of West Africa.”
Globally, NAS has a presence in more than 30 airports, handles five out of the top 10 airlines and manages 31 airport lounges in 12 countries across the Middle East, India, and Africa.
