Bestfly, the Angola-based aviation services company, has achieved IS-BAO, International Standard for Business Aviation Operators, Stage 2. This is the first time an Angolan business aviation company has been awarded the status, which is designed to help flight departments and operators achieve a high level of safety and professionalism. It also makes Bestfly one of the very few companies in Africa to achieve the standard.
The IS-BAO Stage 2 audit assessed the maturity of Bestfly’s Safety Management System (SMS), and the subsequent certification confirms Bestfly is successfully implementing the highest levels of operational safety, and mitigating risk by adhering to its robust SMS. It also acknowledges that Bestfly is delivering a level of service that meets the sector’s exacting international standards.
The accreditation, which is managed by the International Business Aviation Council, IBAC, is only awarded to an operator following an independent audit that examines all areas of business operations.
Holding IS-BAO status is commonly thought of as achieving the pinnacle of industry standards for business aviation operators and gives confidence to customers that specific levels of day to day operational procedures are being followed and met.
