Dubai/Manila, 9 January 2019– dnata, one of the world’s largest air services providers, continues to be recognized for achieving the highest safety standards. The company has renewed its IATA Safety Audit for Ground Operations (ISAGO) Registration by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) in the Philippines, and obtained ISAGO Station Accreditations at Manila Ninoy Aquino International Airport (MNL), Cebu Mactan International Airport (CEB) and Clark Diosdado Macapagal International Airport (CRK) following successful completion of ISAGO Audits at these airports.
dnata’s operations in Manila have already been ISAGO registered since 2010. The renewal of the ISAGO Registration in the Philippine capital demonstrates the company’s ability to meet the highest safety and security standards.
Margaret L. Yu, Chief Executive Officer, dnata Philippines, said: “Safety and security are fundamental aspects of our operations. We always aim to achieve the highest possible safety standards for our customers, their passengers as well as our employees and facilities, and our efforts are clearly reflected in our corporate culture, trainings and processes.”
“The achievement of the prestigious ISAGO certification at all of our Philippine airports is an important milestone, which once again underscores our uncompromised focus on safety and service excellence.”
“We continue to enhance our operations and safety culture by consistently improving our work practices and developing our team.”
ISAGO is an industry global standard for the oversight and audit of ground service providers. It is complementary to the internationally recognized and accepted IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) designed to assess the operational management and control systems of an air operator. The implementation of the ISAGO aims to address the safety risks and incident costs of ground operations.
ISAGO is conducted in a standardized and consistent manner using internationally recognized standards and requires conformance with the applicable ISAGO Standards and Recommended Practices at both the corporate and station levels.
