Ravn Alaska Undergoes First-Ever IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA)
President & CEO, Dave Pflieger announced today that Ravn Alaska, a subsidiary of Alaska’s largest regional airline, has completed the initial onsite phase of the International Air Transport Association (IATA) Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) at the airline’s corporate headquarters in Anchorage, Alaska.
IOSA Registration represents the global standard for airline safety management and currently, 33 Airlines from the United States are registered under IOSA. Following completion of the IOSA certification process, Ravn will join IATA’s IOSA Registry, and, in doing so, it will become the first regional airline in the state of Alaska to receive IOSA registration.
“Joining the elite group of IOSA Registered global carriers will be an unprecedented accomplishment for an Alaska regional airline and a major milestone for our company,” said Ravn President & CEO, Dave Pflieger. “This achievement will be a testament to the hard work and dedication our Ravn Alaska team has shown in working to make safety the highest priority for our customers and our employees.”
IATA’s IOSA program is an internationally recognized and accepted evaluation system designed to assess an air carrier’s management systems, processes, and controls against approximately 900 standards and recommended practices across eight separate organizational disciplines. IOSA registration creates a standard that is comparable on a world-wide basis and is designed so that operational safety audits are conducted in a standardized and consistent manner.
