RwandAir secures ISAGO Certification

rwandairNot long ago, news hit the international scene that the fastest growing airline on the African continent RwandAir has finally received certification from IATA of Safe Ground Operations (ISAGO).

After doing a total and comprehensive auditing process much like e-IOSA, the Improved IATA Operational-Safety Audit, the ground operation department of the national airline of Rwanda has obtained the certification for the IATA safety project.

This came after an audit by WAKE QA (which is an authorized Audit Organization of the IATA) was carried out on the Ground Operations of RwandAir in the month of July 2016. The audit came to a conclusion with very few findings and minimal observations.

ISAGO is an audit program specifically for Ground Service Providers (GSP) under IATA that was patterned on the success of IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA). This audit makes use of internationally acknowledged ground operational standards which are targeted at minimizing risks and cost in addition to lowering occurrences and any injuries.

RwandAir’s Chief Executive Officer John Mirenge said that with such an achievement, the airline will provide improved and better safety standard ground handling services to its customer using the airlines and the private jets serving at Kigali International Airport, and at the same time enhancing productivity. He went on to say that all this came to a reality through the great dedication and tireless efforts of the staff members working with RwandAir.

The quest for this ISAGO certification, along with the present IOSA certification, verifies the dedication of RwandAir to the business’ guidelines in operational safety to a first class standard.

similarly, it has come to our notice that come 2017 the airline will be launching operations in New York as well as London and we still await for the airline management to confirm the purchase of a new wide-bodied Airbus wide aircraft that will facilitate flights between New York and Kigali.
