Air Peace re-affirms commitment to safety, bags third IOSA certification



Nigeria’s flag carrier airline, Air Peace has received its third International Air Transport Association Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) certification.

The IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) programme is an internationally recognised and accepted evaluation system designed to assess the operational management and control systems of an airline.

IOSA uses internationally recognised quality audit principles and is designed to conduct audits in a standardised and consistent manner.

This is coming on the heels of the airline’s announcement of flight operations into Ibadan from Abuja, Kano and Owerri.

It would be recalled that the airline set a record when it obtained its first IOSA barely two years into its operations and was subsequently inducted as a member of the International Air Transport Association (IATA).

She explained that “the exercise this time around was tougher than what obtained in previous years but we scaled through every phase of the certification process due to our unwavering drive to keep raising the bar in our operations”.

She further reassured the flying public of the airline’s resolve to continue to comply with best safety standards and promised more seamless connectivity and an expanded route network in 2020.
