Jet Aviation Receives IS-BAH Stage 2 Safety Registration for 20 FBOs

Jet Aviation has received International Standard for Business Aircraft Handling (IS-BAH) Stage 2 Safety Registration from the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC) for 20 of its FBOs across EMEA and the Americas. The company intends to achieve IS-BAH Standard registration for its new Hawker Pacific and KLM Jet Center FBOs in 2019.

IBAC Program Director for IS-BAH, Terry Yeomans, presented 20 IS-BAH Stage 2 Safety Certificates to Jet Aviation at its MEBAA chalet today in Dubai. “This remarkable achievement demonstrates Jet Aviation’s ongoing commitment to the highest safety standards for its customers and employees,” said Yeomans.

Based around a safety management system that models the structure and format of the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operators (IS-BAO™), IS-BAH establishes criteria for best handling systems, processes and practices to ensure FBOs meet rigorous safety and security standards.

Jet Aviation received IS-BAH Stage 2 Safety Registration for the following FBOs in EMEA and Asia:

• Geneva and Zurich, Switzerland

• Berlin (Schonefeld), Dusseldorf and Munich, Germany

• Vienna, Austria

• Dubai (DXB and DWC), United Arab Emirates

• Jeddah, Medina, and Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

• Singapore

In the U.S., Jet Aviation’s IS-BAH Stage 2-registered FBOs include:

• Washington Dulles, Virginia

• Teterboro, New Jersey

• Bedford, Massachusetts

• Palm Beach, Florida

• Dallas and Houston, Texas

• St. Louis, Missouri

• Van Nuys, California

Stefan Benz, Jet Aviation’s SVP Regional Operations, EMEA, said, "Two years ago, we announced that we had earned IS-BAH Standard registration at 11 of our facilities. Today, we have achieved Stage 2 at nearly double that number. This is a great credit to our teams of FBO professionals and clearly underscores Jet’s culture of global safety." Jet Aviation is exhibiting at MEBAA 2018 from December 10 through December 12. Please take the time to visit the Jet Aviation Chalet (A19/20).
