Cabin Safety Guide

The IATA Cabin Operations Safety Best Practices Guide is intended to give airlines the tools they need to create and update safety procedures and policies, using a global range of references and expert opinions.

Written and updated annually by a global team of cabin safety professionals, this guide includes standards and recommended practices from the IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA), ICAO and other regulators, combined with extensive operational experience of member airlines. It suggests and gives guidance in the appropriate risk assessments to demonstrate the incorporation of Safety Management Systems (SMS) within cabin operations.

As with all safety related reference documents, it is important to keep up to date with any changes and new requirements. This latest edition integrates all existing IATA Cabin Safety guidance material and toolkits and includes new guidance on the acceptance of non-certified comfort devices, smart luggage, ICAO recommended brace positions, the management of medical emergencies, unruly passengers and other cabin related security procedures.
