Asia Flight Services has facilities recognised by IS-BAH
Asia Flight Services' FBOs in Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam have met with IS-BAH approval, while its facilities in Bangladesh and in Papua New Guinea are successfully participating in NATA Safety 1st.
Aljoscha Subasinghe is pleased to be part of a successful team.

Asia Flight Services, an aviation ground services and flight hospitality company providing services to business jets and commercial aircraft across southeast Asia and Asia Pacific, has achieved IS-BAH accreditation for its facilities in Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam. This accreditation was received after audits performed by Aviation Safety Asia, demonstrating that the necessary safety standards and procedures are properly established in the day by day operations of Asia Flight Services and its local operational bases.

IS-BAH is a set of global industry best practices for business aviation ground service providers that features at its core a safety management system.

In addition, all of Asia Flight Services' stations including those in Bangladesh and in Papua New Guinea are successfully participating in the NATA Safety 1st Ground Safety Program.

“We are very proud of our entire team that achieved this important milestone for Asia Flight Services, which shows the commitment of the company's leadership and all operations teams to safety. We foster for a strong safety culture and continuous improvements in our services,” says Guillaume Sautron, safety and standards manager of Asia Flight Services.

Eric Ilowski, IBAC accredited lead auditor for AFS's assessments against the IS-BAH Standard, adds: “This recognition comes at a very challenging time for the aviation industry and is testament to our commitment to ongoing investment in continuous improvement. It is great to see smart operators such as AFS use COVID-19 related downtime to improve safety standards and add further value for their clients.”

Asia Flight Services business development manager Aljoscha Subasinghe concludes: “I feel honoured to be part of this new chapter for Asia Flight Services and very happy to see the continued investment in training and standards across our teams. We believe that this focus on safety and industry best practices will help us to keep improving our service offering.”
