SriLankan Airlines in its unbending mission to maintain the highest standards as the trademark national carrier has renewed its registration under the IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) and IATA Safety Audit for Ground operations (ISAGO) for the years 2015-2016 in conformity with standards introduced by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) to maintain aviation safety and quality.
The audit is conducted by an IATA accredited audit organisation and ISAGO pool member auditors, in accordance with the IOSA and ISAGO Program Manuals, and the standards that are published in IOSA and ISAGO Standard Manuals. Even though the assessment mainly focuses on operational areas, it also includes accountability of organisational management functions relevant to aviation safety.
The IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) program is an internationally recognized and accepted evaluation system designed to assess the operational management and control systems of an airline. IOSA Registered Airlines are subject to renewal assessments every 24 months.
All IATA members are IOSA registered and must remain registered to maintain IATA membership. SriLankan Airlines first attained the IOSA operator status in 2006 and ISAGO in 2008 and has retained the registry since then.
