AirAsia X Malaysia IOSA registration renewed for third consecutive time

SEPANG, 12 April 2018 – AirAsia X Malaysia has received its third biennial IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) registration, affirming its commitment to the highest standards of operational safety.

IOSA is an internationally recognised and accepted evaluation system designed to assess an airline’s operational management and control systems, and is regarded by the industry as the global benchmark for safety management.

To qualify for the registration, AirAsia X Malaysia was required to successfully complete an operational safety audit covering eight areas of operations: organisation and management system, flight operations, operational control and flight dispatch, aircraft engineering and maintenance, cabin operations, ground handling operations, cargo operations and security management.

AirAsia X Malaysia CEO Benyamin Ismail said, “This third IOSA registration is a testament to our continuous commitment to maintaining the highest safety standards across our operations, and it was made possible by our dedicated Allstars who work tirelessly to ensure we comply with the most stringent safety standards in the industry. Safety is at the heart of everything we do and we will strive to not only meet regulatory requirements at all times but to surpass them.”

AirAsia X Malaysia joined the IOSA Registry on 16April 2015, becoming the second airline in Malaysia to successfully pass the internationally recognised operational safety audit.
