NAIROBI, Kenya, July 5 –  Jambojet has been awarded the IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) registration.

The IOSA program is an internationally recognized and accepted evaluation system designed to assess the safety, operational management and control systems of an airline.

The regional airline, comes second after Kenya Airways to get IOSA registration in Kenya, reinforcing its commitment to maintaining global safety standards in its operations.

“Safety is a principal requisite in our industry. Our customers need the assurance that they can travel comfortably, affordably and securely to any of our destinations. This registration is a testament to the effort we have put into ensuring the best operational and efficiency standards as a growing regional airline,”  said Chief Executive Officer Jambojet Allan Kilavuka.

The audit involved 900 standards and recommended practice covering an exhaustive assessment of eight functional and operational areas which include organizations and management systems, flight operations, operational control, flight dispatch, aircraft engineering and maintenance, cabin operations, ground handling operations, and security management.

“The IOSA audit involves a great deal of hard work and requires a significant commitment of people, time and resources. I would like to congratulate Jambojet team for this achievement,” comments Kilavuka.

” As we expand our operations into the region, we are keen to offer value beyond convenience and affordability. Our core promise to our customers and partners is reliability and safety and undergoing the IOSA audit adds to this commitment, across the region,”  he adds.

IOSA uses internationally recognized audit principles and is designed to conduct audits in a standardized and consistent manner.

Airlines are re-evaluated every two years to ensure consistent innovation and observance to operational management, efficiency, airworthiness and safety in the aviation industry.

This achievement comes after the airline was recently awarded the 2018 Bombardier Reliability Award for outstanding performance in dispatch reliability.
