Cargolux passes enhanced IOSA audit with flying colours


Cargolux Airlines International has passed its sixth IOSA audit designed to assess the operational management and control systems of an airline.

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) program renewal takes five days with five auditors checking Cargolux on 900 different standards.

In preparation, a team of 20 people from all concerned divisions worked throughout the year to achieve the result.

Cargolux vice president for quality & compliance monitoring, Graham Hirst says: “This fantastic result is the result of the efforts and endless commitment that the Cargolux staff has put into this ‘Enhanced IOSA’ renewal audit, even during some very stressful moments.”

As an IATA member, Cargolux has to pass an initial IOSA audit and subsequent renewal audits every two years to ensure a constant enhancement of aviation safety.

Cargolux passed its initial audit in 2007 and says IOSA underlines its commitment to the safety of its operations and the constant push for high safety standards within the airline industry.
