Prague based ABS Jets is raising the bar as it becomes the first European FBO to receive IBAC IS-BAH Stage 3 Certification. Since launching as a full FBO service provider at Bratislava airport last year, the company has also been awarded IS-BAH Stage 1 certification for its Bratislava base.
The three-day audit was conducted remotely because of the ongoing pandemic. It again proved an effective method of auditing while stringent restrictions remain in place. Extra thorough preparations were essential to ensure a smooth communication flow. Various communication channels were used to walk the auditors through the facility to observe real-time operations and implemented safety standards. The IS-BAH accreditation process involves an audit of compliance with emergency procedures, training protocols, safety and security regulations, operational procedures and FBO safety management systems.
Director of ground operations Michal Pazourek commented: “I am pleased with the results of the audit, which showed zero findings. The ABS Jets Team is rigorously continuing to build on the safety culture already in place. Indeed, we will keep investing in safety and risk management to prove our commitment to clients, employees, partners and shareholders.”
