Entire Jet Aviation FBO network gains IS-BAH certificate


Jet Aviation IS-BAH signing MEBAA 2016

The entire Jet Aviation network of Fixed Base Operation (FBOs) facilities across EMEA and Asia has received registration to the IS-BAH Standard (International Standard for Business Aircraft Handling) from the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC).

The company operates 11 FBO facilities in EMEA and Asia, all of which operate under one unified safety and quality management system.

The IS-BAH Standard was developed by the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC) and the National Air Transportation Association (NATA) and launched at EBACE 2014.

Terry Yeomans, program director of IS-BAH said: “We are delighted to see our member list of IS-BAH -registered companies expand. By ensuring registered ground handling organisations are conducting their operations under a set of standardised best practices, IS-BAH registration helps raise the industry’s safety standards while offering assurance to aircraft owners and operators that they are in good hands.”

Daniel Brechbühl, safety and quality manager of Jet Aviation said: “Our first priority is to ensure our clients arrive safely at their destinations while providing premium service throughout their travels. Continuous improvement is a priority at Jet Aviation and our FBO facilities have been working closely together to standardize our handling processes since the IS-BAH registration program was introduced two years ago. These IS-BAH designations show that we stand behind that commitment. I’m particularly pleased to note the significance of 11 registrations within one company compared to the industry.”

Stefan Benz, senior vice president and general manager of Jet Aviation’s MRO and FBO operations in EMEA and Asia said: “These designations demonstrate our ability to continually improve our processes, with a constant view to meeting the needs of our customers to the highest quality standards. This outstanding collective achievement truly helps raise the safety bar for handling services in the industry.”
