The Air Elite network is committed to safety and consistency, and many of the members are in different stages of the IS-BAH certification process. Two of the most recent Air Elite Network accomplishments include Dassault Falcon Services becoming IS-BAH certified and Skylink Services in Larnaca, Cyprus achieving Stage II status.

A customer of Dassault Falcon Services, Lebanon-based Fly Executive captain Abdallah Cherkawi says: “I flew everywhere with Dassault Falcon Services for 12 years, so I can attest that the DFS FBO provides first-class service from my experience. The incredible quality of service is constantly increasing and simply makes the difference.”

Skylink Services is the sole owner and operator of the only FBO facility in Cyprus, based at Larnaca International airport. Services include aircraft handling, catering, customs and immigration service, overflight permits, credit facilities and executive aircraft charter brokerage. Skylink's Stage II certification will bolster its services for the 400 international companies worldwide that it serves. Owner George Mavros comments: “Skylink Services is dedicated to the highest level of service and safety for our aircraft operators. We are honoured to have completed Stage II IS-BAH certification. We are committed to further our certification effort through to Stage III soon. Aircraft owners and operations can be assured that Skylink Services and other IS-BAH certified member locations will handle their aircraft guided by the industry standard.”

World Fuel Services SVP, business aviation bulk fuel sales Steve Drzymalla adds: “Instilling confidence with operators and passengers is the number one priority of the Air Elite Network. Our members dedication to advance their operational safety standards is a true representation of the commitment they have to their customers. We value the partnership between IS-BAH and the Air Elite network.”

The IS-BAH certification is designed to promote use of industry best practices blended through a progressive safety management system (SMS) for FBOs and business aircraft handling agencies. This set of guidelines follows the long-established structure of the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO) programme and fully incorporates the NATA Safety First Ground Audit Program. Air Elite locations take the extra steps to ensure operators receive the best service for their aircraft.
