The Hong Kong-based business jet operator, Metrojet, is the first and only local operator recognized by the International Business Aviation Council for its ten-year support and participation in International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations.
Metrojet received its Stage 1 IS-BAO certificate in 2011 and Stage 2 in 2014. It has further affirmed its safety efforts achieving the first Stage 3 IS-BAO certificate in 2016 and the subsequent three-year renewal in 2019.
IS-BAO contains three stages of certification of which Stage 3 is the highest registration certificate issued by IBAC. The successful completion of the audit verifies that the safety management activities are fully integrated into an operator’s business and that a positive safety culture is fully integrated and supported in the daily operations.
Metrojet’s CEO Gary Dolski said, “We are extremely grateful and proud to have received this high-level recognition from IBAC together with other internationally renowned organizations, including NASA.”
Eddy Lee, Metrojet’s head of corporate safety and quality said, “We would like to thank all of our employees for adhering to the Company’s safety standards and procedures and believe their efforts can assist in raising the industry safety bar higher in the Asia region where we based and operate.”
