Emirates has scored a perfect safety mark with the International Air Transport Association (IATA) for operational safety standards and practices.
The IATA recently evaluated over 1,000 standards and recommended practices established by the IATA's Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) program. Spanning five days, assessments were made to determine if Emirates adheres to the strict guidelines of the ISARP standard.
The audit organization, accredited by the IATA, evaluated the operational management system of the airline to ensure its compliance with comprehensive standards for aviation safety and efficiency. With this evaluation, Emirates continues to be at the forefront of global aviation safety and remains committed to delivering the highest levels of service to customers worldwide.
With this strong audit report, Emirates has demonstrated the rigor of its systems and processes to ensure safe operational practices and the airworthiness of its modern fleet of Boeing 777s and Airbus A380s.
Emirates has a strong culture of safety that runs through every level of the organization. The airline operates under strict operational safety policies, which are continuously monitored and adjusted to meet the highest standards when regulations change or new planes are introduced.
To maintain the highest levels of safety, Emirates upholds an extensive range of protocols which cover several facets from crew training and fatigue management to aircraft maintenance.
The Emirates Compliance Monitoring team is dedicated to ensuring the highest levels of safety and security in their airline network. As part of their commitment, they continuously audit their systems and practices to ensure that they are up-to-date with IOSA standards and identify any potential non-conformities.
The audits comprise detailed reviews of critical systems, as well as regular management reviews led by senior executives, who are briefed on the airline's compliance status. By staying up-to-date with these standards and managing any issues that arise, Emirates is able to maintain their high levels of safety and security in an ever-changing industry.
Sir Tim Clark, President Emirates Airline said: “Safety is one of Emirates’ core values, and since day one, we’ve continually invested to ensure that our operations meet the most rigorous safety standards. To complete the IOSA audit with zero findings is a notable achievement especially in the context of our rapid operational upscaling post-pandemic, and the global nature of Emirates’ network. It’s a credit to our internal teams and external partners who contribute to Emirates’ safe transport of thousands of people and tonnes of goods around the globe each day. We’ll continue to work hard and contribute to ensuring a safe and sustainable aviation industry.”
