Air Elite seeks IS-BAH accreditation

The Air Elite Network, part of World Fuel Services, has partnered with the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC) so network members can attend training and pursue the International Standard for Business Aviation Handling (IS-BAH) accreditation in 2016 and beyond.

Several Air Elite members currently hold IS-BAH accreditation or are working toward the certification. With the guidance of the Air Elite network, all members can attend workshops and take steps to becoming accredited.

IS-BAH is designed to promote the use of industry best practices through a progressive safety management system (SMS) for fixed based operations and business aircraft handling agencies. As one global industry code of best practices, IS-BAH introduces a regulatory standard for the safety oversight of ground service providers and aircraft operators to meet the proposed changes to SMS.

“The Air Elite network has set the bar high for its members in the area of service standards and quality since its inception. Safety is always paramount in the aviation industry. Air Elite’s goal of bringing each member up to speed with the new IS-BAH requirements furthers the network’s commitment to quality and safety excellence,” said John Rau, World Fuel Services’ executive vice president of aviation.
