Air India obtains safety audit

Air India has received the IATA Safety Audit for Ground Operations (ISAGO).

During the audit, airline’s headquarters’ organisation and management systems as well as the management system at various stations (airports), were assessed on the parameters like passenger and baggage handling, load control, aircraft handling and loading, aircraft ground movement, cargo and mail handling.

“This would give Air India an edge over others in providing ground handling services to international carriers if they come to India,” a senior Air India official said.

ISAGO compliance will reduce costs, enhance safety standards and ensure greater safety and quality standards.

In 2003 Air India was the first airline in India to clear the IATA Operational Safety Audit.
