MISSISSAUGA, ON, Nov. 10, 2011 /CNW/ - Cargojet recently had its
International Air Transport Association's (IATA) Operational Safety
Audit registration renewed. 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. IOSA uses internationally recognized quality audit principles
to conduct audits in a standardized and consistent manner.
IATA's mission is to represent, lead and serve the airline industry. Its
members comprise 240 of the world's leading passenger and cargo
airlines - representing over 90 percent of scheduled international air
traffic. Cargojet is very proud to be a full member of IATA.
"The audit is an in-depth look at the practices and standards of the
airline with the end goal of meeting a common, worldwide standard for
safety in everything we do," according to Ajay K. Virmani, President &
CEO. "We fully support the continuous updating of standards to reflect
regulatory revisions and the evolution of best practices within the
worldwide airline industry under the continuing stewardship of IATA",
A team of independent IATA accredited IOSA auditors spent time examining
Cargojet during the past few months. They examined every operational
aspect of the airline including flight operations, maintenance
operations and management practices. They observed Cargojet flights,
evaluated security, observed aircraft loading and reviewed Company
procedures manuals during their audit.
Cargojet is Canada's leading provider of time sensitive overnight air
cargo services. Cargojet operates its network across North America,
transporting over 750, 000 pounds of time sensitive air cargo each
business night, utilizing a fleet of thirteen of all-cargo aircraft.
