It has been renewed on the IOSA Safety Audit Registry until May 2023.

The audit covers approximately 1,000 standards and recommended practices that are all related to the safety of operations, as well as maintenance and engineering and the procedures of the airline. Gulf Air, being a member of IATA, is required to pass an initial IOSA audit and subsequent renewal audits every two years. This ensures a constant enhancement of aviation safety and is recognized by insurers, several aviation authorities worldwide and international partners.

Gulf Air’s acting chief executive officer, Captain Waleed said: “At Gulf Air, we are proud to be operating at the highest global safety standards and industry best practices. The latest IOSA renewal reinforces our ongoing commitment to safety and continuous development of standards, regulatory requirements and practices within our operations and engineering activities. As we strive to remain at the forefront of safety developments, this latest achievement reflects our success to date”. He added: “Our team with its commitment to a high safety standard strives continuously on the enhancement and improvement of our policies, procedures and processes especially during these challenging times. We have worked during the last two years and since our last audit in the integration of the IOSA newly standards and best practices.
