FirstNation Airways attains IOSA certification

As part of efforts to further entrench safety in its operations, Nigerian carrier Firstnation Airways has now joined the group of airlines across the globe holding International Air Transport Association Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) certification.
 The IOSA Programme is an internationally recognized and accepted evaluation system designed to assess the operational management and control system of an airline and IOSA certified airlines have the highest safety standard worldwide in 2014.
  As such IOSA has become a global standard recognized well beyond IATA membership.  IOSA certification will help to enhance African Airlines Safety and Operational Standards to World class and in line with industry best practice.

 Reacting to this certification, management of the airline in a statement said,” The fact that the airline was able to attain this certification within record time attests to the airline’s robust structure”

“Firstnation  from  launch  has  assembled  young  crop  of  dynamic  and  motivated professionals which has resulted in the airline building a strong brand with respectable market presence within a relatively short period.  The airline is currently working on aircraft fleet expansion that will see the airline grow aircraft fleet and route network.”
“Firstnation is now the first (true to our name) out of the ten airlines across the African continent,  chosen  by  IATA  in  2014  to  undergo  the  prestigious  IOSA  Certification,  to successfully complete the certification process and achieve IOSA registration within the timeline. “

 

  The 22nd Ordinary Session of the African Union (AU) Executive Council held on (25th -26th January, 2013 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia) endorsed the Abuja Declaration and Associated Plan of Action on Aviation Safety in Africa, making it a requirement for all African Airlines to successfully complete IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) Certification by end of 2015.
