ABS Jets builds on safety foundation with IS-BAH Stage II
Last year ABS Jets celebrated a decade in the industry and 20,000 rotations handled. It is starting 2019 with equal panache, becoming the first company in the Czech Republic to attain IS-BAH Stage II.
ABS Jets aims for a seamless service from arrival at the terminal to the steps of a client's aircraft.

Czech operator ABS Jets, based in Prague and Bratislava, has recently been awarded an International Standard for Business Aircraft Handling (IS-BAH) Stage II certificate. The company is the first and only holder of this certificate in the Czech Republic.

IS-BAH is a global industry standard for handlers and operators around the world and meets the forthcoming SMS requirements of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).

IS-BAH Stage I certified since 2017, ABS Jets ground handling operates from a VIP terminal at Prague airport where it owns two hangars, a VIP crew lounge and provides full inhouse ground handling services such as aircraft refuelling and de-icing, as well as passenger and crew services. During the recent Stage II audit, the company had to demonstrate compliance with emergency and contingency planning, airside operations, ground support equipment, training and other safety and security regulations.

“It's a great honour to become the first and only holder of IS-BAH Stage II certification in the Czech Republic,” states COO and accountable manager Jan Kralik. “Last year, our Prague handling unit achieved two significant milestones: ten years on the market and 20,000 rotations handled. Along with achieving IS-BAH Stage II, we are re-affirming our efforts to deliver safety excellence and top-quality services.”

ABS Jets specialises in large and ultra long haul jet operations and offers a portfolio of services including aircraft management, CAMO, 24/7 ground handling, flight planning, jet charter, brokerage and travel management.
