ExecuJet Aviation Group has received accreditation by the International Standard for Business Aircraft Handling (IS-BAH) for its FBO in Zurich, becoming the first FBO in Switzerland and one of the first across Europe to hold this industry-leading certificate.
The IS-BAH is a global code of best practices for business aviation ground handlers assessed through a safety management system, which crucially recognizes that FBOs need to plan and conduct operations in a standardized way.
Basil Gamper, ExecuJet’s Zurich FBO manager, said, “We are delighted our Zurich FBO has passed the IS-BAH audit, which not only shows the quality of our support services but also our commitment to using the most comprehensive assessments available across the board. This market-leading and standardized measure for handlers, FBOs and operators worldwide is a program we strongly believe in and one we will be implementing in all our FBOs.”
The IS-BAH follows the long established structure of the IS-BAO program, used by operator clients, and is a joint program between IBAC and NATA. It incorporates the NATA Safety 1st ground audit program and is assessed externally by an IBAC-accredited auditor, who recognizes conformity to the standard with an IBAC certificate of registration.
