Posted 11 March 2016 · Add Comment

Dubai-based Flydubai has become a fully-fledged member of IATA following its successful completion of the IOSA safety audit.

Flydubai’s CEO, Ghaith Al Ghaith was presented with the IOSA certificate by Hussein Dabbas, IATA’s regional vice president, Africa and the Middle East who said: ““We are delighted to welcome Flydubai to IATA. Having a Middle-East-based new model airline as a full member broadens our airline representation and allows us to serve the industry more effectively. We look forward to representing Flydubai and our other member airlines as we work to tackle the many broad and complex issues facing aviation globally,”
Flydubai successfully completed its IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) last year. The audit, which is a pre-requisite for an IATA membership, examined all the operational departments across the airline to ensure that the carrier’s internal processes promote; safety, integrity and effectiveness in its management systems.
Al Ghaith said: “Six years into its operations, Flydubai continues to set benchmarks and the IATA membership marks another milestone in our success story. The membership qualification requires discipline and commitment to ensure that the business is running to the highest levels of safety and efficiency. We are very proud of this achievement which is a reflection of the integrity and hard work of the highly skilled workforce at Flydubai.”
Since its launch in 2009, Flydubai has been challenging the conventions of air travel in the region and has been committed to creating free flows of trade and tourism between the UAE and previously underserved markets. The airline said that the IATA membership will further strengthen its position as a regional player and provide an opportunity to help set the industry's priorities on key initiatives and drive industry change.
