“We believe this achievement on a global scale sets a new, high standard in the industry for ground-handling service that Jet Aviation will provide at every single FBO, no matter where it is located,” adds Jet Aviation Regional Operations USA Senior VP & General Manager David Paddock.

Developed by IBAC and the National Air Transportation Association (NATA) and launched at EBACE 2014, the IS-BAH standard is based on a safety management system that models the structure and format of the standard for Business Aircraft Operators (IS-BAO). IS-BAH establishes criteria to ensure handling systems, processes, and practices meet rigorous safety and security standards.

“By ensuring registered ground-handling organizations are conducting their operations under a set of standardized best practices, IS-BAH registration helps raise the industry’s safety standards while offering assurance to aircraft owners and operators that they are in good hands,” explains IBAC IS-BAH Director Terry Yeomans.
