Gulf Air gets IATA safety audit certificate
Manama, August 28, 2011
Bahrain's national carrier Gulf Air said it has officially received the global safety audit certification from the International Air Transport Association (IATA).
In May this year, Gulf Air renewed its place on the IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) Registry until 2013 after successfully completing the association’s safety audit requirements.
Commenting on the achievement, Gulf Air chief operations officer Captain Nasser Al Salmi said, "The IOSA certification reassures our customers that they are flying with an airline that conforms to strict international safety standards."
"Passenger safety is top priority for Gulf Air and the IOSA certificate is a testament to our commitment that we fly our aircraft to the highest level of operational safety," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
