Corvus Airlines, Inc. d/b/a Ravn Alaska announced today its plans to begin the process of obtaining the International Air Transport Association’s Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) certification. IOSA commits Ravn Alaska to being held to the highest standards of safety in the airline industry. Once achieved, Ravn Alaska will be the first and only Alaska-‐based airline to hold the certification.
The International Air Transport Association (IATA) represents 265 airlines across the globe, 83 percent of total air traffic. Its mission is to represent, lead and serve the airline industry and drive a safe, secure and profitable air transportation industry.
“We carry more than a million passengers and 41 million pounds of cargo each year and every passenger trusts us to get them safely to where they need to be,” said Ravn Alaska’s CEO, Bob Hajdukovich. “At Ravn Alaska, safety is our highest priority; we’re constantly making improvements to our safety procedures at every stage of our operation.”
IOSA is an internationally recognized standard that assesses an airline’s operational management and control systems. IOSA-‐certified airlines are held to the most stringent rules and practices for aviation safety. There are 34 other airlines in the United States that are IOSA certified and registering for IOSA certification is a non-‐mandated choice for carriers. Once Ravn Alaska is certified, it will be included in the IOSA registry.
