Jet Aviation has received IS-BAH Stage 2 safety registration from the International Business Aviation Council for 20 of its FBOs across EMEA and the Americas. The company intends to achieve IS-BAH registration for its recently acquired Hawker Pacific and KLM Jet Center FBOs in 2019.
IBAC programme director for IS-BAH Terry Yeomans presented 20 IS-BAH Stage 2 safety certificates to Jet Aviation at the MEBAA show in Dubai. “This remarkable achievement demonstrates Jet Aviation's ongoing commitment to the highest safety standards for its customers and employees,” said Yeomans.
Based around a safety management system that models the structure and format of the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operators (IS-BAO), IS-BAH establishes criteria for best handling systems, processes and practices to ensure FBOs meet rigorous safety and security standards.
The Jet Aviation FBOs that have received certification are Geneva, Zurich, Berlin (Schonefeld), Dusseldorf, Munich, Vienna, Dubai (DXB and DWC), Jeddah, Medina, Riyadh, Singapore, Washington Dulles, Teterboro, Bedford, Palm Beach, Dallas, Houston, St Louis and Van Nuys.
Stefan Benz, Jet Aviation's SVP regional operations, EMEA, says, "Two years ago, we announced that we had earned IS-BAH registration at 11 of our facilities. Today, we have achieved Stage 2 at nearly double that number. This is a great credit to our teams of FBO professionals and clearly underscores Jet Aviation's culture of global safety."
