Earlier this year, Austrian operator Sparfell Luftfahrt successfully passed the IS-BAO Stage II audit again and renewed the certificate issued by IBAC.
CEO Edward Queffelec says: “My predecessor, the great Niki Lauda, put in place a strong and sustainable system to ensure that our impeccable standards of safety and service are maintained in every situation. By maintaining the IS-BAO accreditation, it reassures our customers that our safety management activities are fully integrated into our business and that a positive safety culture is in place.”
Sparfell wishes to keep Lauda's vision of perfection alive through all its operations, with Niki Lauda's spirit, the Esprit Lauda, defined by constantly striving for the highest safety standards and front-line professionalism. Sparfell acquired LaudaMotion Executive, later renamed Sparfell Luftfahrt, in 2019 and has continued to implement Niki Lauda's principles in daily operations, going above and beyond standard required regulations, which is precisely what the IS-BAO Stage II certificate represents.
Queffelec concludes: “the team and I are very pleased to keep our IS-BAO accreditation along with our very own safety standard, the ‘made by Niki Lauda’ safety standard.”
