Avinode has added IS-BAO to complement the existing Wyvern and Argus safety standard awards two of the industry’s leading safety standard organisations.

“IS-BAO, Wyvern and Argus are the three most highly recognized safety standards in the industry.”

Oliver King, managing director of Avinode, said: “IS-BAO, Wyvern and Argus are the three most highly recognised safety standards in the industry. It was a natural decision to add IS-BAO to the mix, to provide our customers with the best options when it comes to choosing an aircraft.

“Whilst these standards are voluntary, we know from customer feedback that industry safety standards certainly help air charter buyers make an informed and intelligent choice of aircraft within the Avinode Marketplace.”

Kurt Edwards, director general of the IBAC, added: “IBAC is very pleased to partner with Avinode. Having IS-BAO displayed in Avinode’s Marketplace recognises both the global value of IS-BAO and the clear commitment to safety of IS-BAO-registered charter operators.”
