FBO Riga business aviation centre at Riga International airport, Latvia, has gained the International Standard for Business Aircraft Handling (IS-BAH) Stage II accreditation, as the company has successfully passed the second audit of the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC). FBO Riga is the first and the only holder of this certificate in the Baltic States.

Co-owner Roman Starkov says: “We are proud to earn IS-BAH Stage II accreditation. This international recognition was achieved by the great efforts of the whole team, which is committed to the highest level of safety for ground handling operations. A rigorous audit by IBAC confirmed that FBO Riga fulfils all the requirements for business aviation safety and in many respects exceeds what is required by mandatory documents.”

To date, 162 organisations have earned IS-BAH registration worldwide, with 68 companies achieving Stage II, and only two organisations accredited by Stage III. In Europe, just over 50 FBOs hold an IS-BAH certificate, and less than 20 organisations have achieved Stage II.

“Safety is our absolute priority, it is the basis of our work,” explains fellow co-owner Leonid Gorodnitski. “We are proud to have received another international recognition of FBO Riga's professionalism. Our customers, partners, passengers and crews can be confident about top-notch services at our business aviation centre.”

FBO Riga earned IS-BAH Stage I registration in 2017, becoming the first holder of the certificate in the Baltic States.
