EBACE 2019: TAG Aviation Macau receives IS-BAH accreditation for ground handling


TAG Aviation Macau’s FBO has been awarded the International Standard for Business Aircraft Handling Stage 1 certificate of registration from the International Business Aviation Council for their unwavering commitment to safety and quality ground handling.

The International Standard for Business Aircraft Handling (IS-BAH) Stage 1 standard focuses on the refueling, ground handling and storing of general aviation aircraft. IS-BAH  is a set of global industry’s best practices in safety management and risk mitigation for business aviation ground handlers.

To become IS-BAH accredited an FBO’s safety management systems, emergency and security procedures, organisational structure, training protocols and operating procedures are audited by a third party. Certificates of registration are issued by International Business Aviation Council (IBAC).

Rita Tam, general manager of the  TAG Macau FBO said, “We are extremely proud to have become the first IS-BAH accredited FBO based in Macau. It demonstrates to our customers that the TAG Macau FBO team, from ground handling to maintenance services, is totally committed to providing the highest quality of services while adhering to the most stringent safety standards.

“This achievement marks a significant milestone for our FBO’s first six months of operations.”

Dane Williams, director of Aviation Safety Asia for TAG Aviation said, “This beautifully appointed VIP facility unquestionably upholds the same high standards of the wider TAG Aviation Group.

“The TAG Macau FBO team should be very proud to have become the first FBO based in Macau to receive IS-BAH accreditation and only the second FBO to obtain IS-BAH accreditation in the emerging Greater Bay Area of Southern China.”
