Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Tuesday, 27 September 2011

Air Astana has passed the latest International Air Transport Association Operational Safety Audit (IOSA).

The audit was completed with Air Astana remaining the only airline from Kazakhstan to maintain repeated audit success, since it was first undertaken in 2007.

During the latest audit in May 2011, safety documentation and implementation of more than 900 IOSA standards were verified on all aspects of the airlines activities. These included organization and management, flight operations, operational control and flight dispatch, engineering and maintenance, cabin operations, ground handling, cargo operation and security.

Achieving the IOSA audit reaffirms Air Astanas status of leadership in operational safety issues across the Central Asia/ CIS region. We constantly strive to improve all aspects of our operations and this latest success is a credit to the spirit and hard work of all Air Astana employees involved in this critical process, said Peter Foster, President of Air Astana.

Based on the audit results, the next IOSA of Air Astana will take place in 2013.

The airline currently operates a fleet of 24 aircraft comprising two Boeing 767-300, four Boeing 757-200, ten Airbus A321/A320/A319, two Embraer E190 and six Fokker 50 that serve 23 domestic and 31 international destinations.
