The IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) program is an internationally recognized and accepted evaluation system designed to assess the operational management and control systems of an airline. All IATA members are IOSA registered and must remain registered to maintain IATA membership.
The total accident rate for IOSA carriers in 2013 was 2.5 times lower than the rate for non-IOSA operators. As such, IOSA has become a global standard, recognized well beyond IATA membership. As of October 2014, 154 (38%) of the 402 airlines on the IOSA registry were non-IATA member airlines. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
If you would like to access an IOSA Audit Report, kindly complete the request form (doc) and return it to the IOSA team.
