Jamaica's Airways International Limited has been awarded a Stage II IS-BAH registration designation after successfully completing a comprehensive safety audit. In achieving a Stage II registration, Airways International successfully demonstrated that the company has met IS-BAH safety standards, which confirms that safety management activities are operational and that safety risks are being effectively managed.
Located at the Norman Manley International airport in Kingston, the company has been in operation for more than 50 years and is the longest standing holder of an AOC on the island.
“In achieving a Stage II IS-BAH registration designation, we have realised our goal of increasing safety awareness throughout our organisation,” says MD Christopher Read. “It's a true testament to our team's efforts in helping to mitigate risks.”
IS-BAH was established through the efforts of IBAC and NATA as a global code to identify and promote the use of industry best practices by means of a progressive safety management system for both FBOs and business aircraft handling agencies. It follows the structure of the IS-BAO and the NATA Safety 1st ground audit programme.
