IS-BAH achieves century milestone

Posted 16 January 2018 · Add Comment

The International Business Aviation Council (IBAC) has announced its International Standard for Business Aircraft Handling (IS-BAH) programme has reached 100 registered handler locations since it was introduced in July 2014.

The IS-BAH follows the structure of the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO) programme and incorporates the NATA Safety 1st Ground Audit Program. IS-BAH is the global industry standard for business aircraft handling agents and fixed-base operators around the world developed to align with existing and future Safety Management System (SMS) requirements aimed at ground handling service providers. 

“We are excited to reach this milestone of 100 IS-BAH operator locations, and I am very proud of our team that made this possible,” stated Terry Yeomans, Programme Director for IS-BAH. “We are experiencing substantial growth in the programme right now. I see our momentum continuing as more FBOs and handling agents embrace the code of industry developed best practices as our sector recognizes the value of a positive safety culture to their core business.”
