ExecuJet Africa is celebrating its prestigious status as operator of the first ever jet to land at St Helena Airport (HLE) in the South Atlantic Ocean.
Swiss-registered ExecuJet Europe AG has been accredited with IBAC’s International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO) Stage Three certificate, the highest IS-BAO accreditation the organisation can achieve, demonstrating IBAC’s confidence in ExecuJet Europe to continually exceed safety management best practices.
IS-BAO, IBAC’s voluntary code of best practice, enhances operational safety through predictive and proactive methods, improves safety culture, efficiency and effectiveness and increases executive level appreciation of aircraft operations. The IS-BAO Stage Three certificate verifies that safety management activities are fully integrated into a business and that a positive safety culture is being sustained.
Niclas von Planta, Vice-President, ExecuJet Europe says: “IS-BAO is one of the most highly recognized standards in the industry and as such the ExecuJet Europe team is overwhelmingly delighted to have received this accreditation, which reflects the hard work and dedication of every single employee.
“As part of the accreditation process, ExecuJet Europe was able to demonstrate high performance levels in a range of key areas including, amongst others, safety management; training and proficiency; flight operations; aircraft equipment and maintenance requirements; fatigue management programs, and security.”
This is the first IS-BAO Stage Three certificate for ExecuJet globally, and the first within the Luxaviation Group.
