Cebu Pacific is now listed on IATA's Operational
Safety Audit (IOSA) registry of operators that have met the
benchmark for airline safety management.
The airline achieved full compliance with
IOSA, joining a roster of 429 airlines worldwide that have
complied with the most stringent of international standards
governing aviation safety. IOSA is considered the accreditation
with the highest standards for safety in the airline industry.
Though Cebu Pacific (CEB) is not a member of
IATA, which represents some 280 airlines comprising 83% of global
air traffic, it is now listed in the IOSA registry of operators
that have met the benchmark for airline safety management.
“We are committed to upholding the highest
possible standards for the benefit of our passengers. Hence, we
chose to undergo the rigorous and stringent audit requirements for
IOSA. Since it is considered the internationally-recognised and
accepted benchmark for airline safety, we wanted to be sure that
our protocols and regulations meet IOSA standards,” said Lance
Gokongwei, President and CEO of Cebu Pacific Air.
Over the past several months, Cebu Pacific has
invested in technology that improves its capability to better
manage safety risks. These include the on-board Runway Overrun
Prevention System (ROPS) cockpit technology for its Airbus fleet,
which monitors runway conditions before landing and calculates
where the aircraft can safely stop; Area Navigation (RNAV) data
for more accurate navigation and approaches to various airports;
and a Fatigue Risk Management System for pilots to minimize safety
risks and ensure they are at adequate levels of alertness.
Airlines are re-evaluated for IOSA certification
every two years using global best practices for auditing
operations management and other control systems such as flight
operations, operational control, flight dispatch, aircraft
engineering and maintenance, cabin operations, aircraft ground
handling, cargo operations and operational security.
