Zurich FBO gains Stage II handling certification
Situated on the east side of Zurich airport between the Cargo East complex and the city of Kloten, Cat Air Service can now add Stage II IS-BAH certification to its credentials.
Cat Air Service has received IS-BAH Stage II.

Zurich airport FBO Cat Air Service has been granted the second stage of the IS-BAH certification from the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC).

General manager Roger Büchner comments: “This achievement not only demonstrates our high level of ground service at our facility but also our commitment to maintaining the highest safety standards for our customers and employees.”

The IS-BAH certification relies on the safety management system for Business Aircraft Operators (IS-BAO). The IS-BAH certificate establishes criteria for ground handling processes to ensure aircraft and passengers comply with ground safety and security standards.

Established in 2014, Cat Air Service is a joint venture between Swiss companies Air Service Basel and Cat Aviation. Located at Zurich airport, Cat Air Service provides full ground handling and has an airside lounge with restaurant service, a snooze room, a shower room and meeting facilities.
