The Charter is aimed at strengthening organisational safety culture, which is an area of focus in IATA's Collaborative Aviation Safety Improvement Program (CASIP), under Focus Africa.
"At RwandAir, safety is not just a priority but a fundamental principle guiding our operations. Our organisational culture is deeply rooted in robust safety practices, making it the cornerstone of our operational integrity. By signing the IATA Safety Leadership Charter, we are not only reaffirming our unwavering commitment to a culture of safety but also recognising the imperative to continuously build on the work that has gone before," said Yvonne Makolo, CEO of RwandAir.
"Enhancing aviation safety in Africa is not just a critical priority; it's a fundamental component of the continent's overall development. Fostering a robust safety culture is paramount. We commend RwandAir's leadership for their commitment to safety by signing the IATA Safety Leadership Charter. This clearly demonstrates their dedication to cultivating a strong safety culture and continuously striving for improvements that benefit not only RwandAir but the broader industry as well,” said Kamil Alawadhi, IATA’ Regional Vice-President for Africa and the Middle East.
