IS-BAH auditor has high praise for DCAF
DC Aviation Al-Futtaim says that the successful completion of the Stage II audit was a result of months of around-the-clock hard work from all the teams involved and the continuous support of the management.
DCAF's FBO is located at Al Maktoum International airport in Dubai South.

DC Aviation Al-Futtaim (DCAF) has received the International Standard for Business Aircraft Handling (IS-BAH) Stage II certification for its FBO located at Al Maktoum International airport in Dubai South. DCAF completed its Stage I certification in May 2019.

IS-BAH Stage II certification is the second of three levels of the highest possible safety standards that an FBO can have. The certification is the global industry standard on safety management and risk mitigation for business aviation handlers.

The accreditation process involved a complete audit of DCAF's FBO safety management systems, emergency and security procedures, organisational structure, training protocols and operating procedures and was conducted by an independent auditor from IBAC.

Ground ops director Susan Bujtas says: “The safety of our customers and employees remains our top priority. It is an ongoing investment we make and is part and parcel of our DNA. The successful completion of the Stage II audit was a result of months of around-the-clock hard work from all the teams involved and the continuous support of the management. This certification further demonstrates our vision to provide customers with the highest levels of safety and service.”

Auditor Karen Hein-Jones adds: “The beautifully appointed DC Aviation Al-Futtaim VIP facility unquestionably upholds the same high standards of the wider DC Aviation Group. The DC Aviation Al-Futtaim team should be very proud of their strong result, which validates their commitment to their clients and safety; it is clear this organisation is handling aircraft to a very high standard in the UAE.”
