IAM Jet Centre’s Montego Bay FBO in Jamaica has been awarded IS-BAH registration by IBAC, making it the first FBO in the Caribbean and Latin America to achieve the demanding international standard for best practice ground handling.
Speaking about the company’s decision to apply for IS-BAH registration, group managing director Paul Worrell, explained, “We recognized the great value of the comprehensive review of all aspects of what we do in the delivery of our services to clients and the ability to confirm to those clients that IAM Jet Centre is focused on best practices. We decided to start the process at our Montego Bay FBO given the presence there of our very experienced group safety and procedures leader, Edward Foster.”
The IS-BAH registration process included the enhancement of the FBO’s SMS program as part of its wider processes and procedures, which enables careful risk assessment and control as part of its best practice corporate culture.
“IAM Jet Centre clients, many of whom are flight departments that themselves have achieved the respected IS-BAO registration, will increasingly seek to work with FBOs around the world that have demonstrated the standards of overall operation that IS-BAH demands. IAM is the first in the Caribbean and Latin America.
“IAM Jet Centres in Barbados, Grenada and Tortola are currently finalizing the concluding documentation pending the required registration audit process. We expect to have all locations listed very shortly,” Worrell said.
