Berlin, 22nd August 2019
Luftfahrtgesellschaft Walter (LGW) has successfully passed the IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) of the International Air Transport Association (IATA). On this basis it will apply for membership in the IATA.
The IOSA is the worldwide industry standard for operational quality and safety procedures in air traffic. During certification, all operational departments such as organisation, flight operations, aircraft maintenance and cabin crew are checked for the course of established procedures. IATA is an international association representing some 290 airlines or 82% of all air traffic. Its members play a major role in shaping industrial policy issues in aviation.
Dominik Wiehage, Managing Director of LGW: “We are delighted to have received IOSA certification. We now officially meet the strict quality and safety requirements of the IATA and are visible to everyone. The certification is a great confirmation of the work of every LGW employee. We are convinced that the certification represents an important step into the future of LGW”.
This means that both airlines of the Zeitfracht Group are certified with the IOSA. In addition to LGW, WDL Aviation, which already has been successfully audited in the past, is also part of the Berlin family business.
