Cargolux Airlines International has passed its fourth International Air Transport Association (IATA) Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) renewal audit.

During the five-day audit, five auditors assessed Cargolux on about 850 different standards. In preparation for this, a team of 20 people from all concerned divisions worked for about three months to achieve what the carrier says was an “exceptional result”.

As a member of IATA, Cargolux, like any other IATA member airline, has to pass an initial IOSA audit and subsequent renewal audits every two years.

This ensures a constant enhancement of aviation safety and is recognizsed by insurers and a number of aviation authorities, such as the FAA, across the world.

Cargolux vice president of quality and compliance, Graham Hurst, says: “This fantastic result is due to the great work that everyone in Cargolux has put into this IOSA, even during some very stressful moments.”
