Qatar Airways has achieved 100 per cent compliance in the IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA), confirming its status as one of the world’s safest and most secure airlines.
As an industry leader in aviation safety, the airline has demonstrated a strong safety and security performance record. It was the first airline to complete the IOSA audit with 100 per cent compliance in 2003, and has since completed the audit in 2005, 2007, 2009, 2011, 2013 and 2015, achieving 100 per cent compliance each year.
Not only does Qatar Airways have a proven track record of active compliance with international regulatory safety and security requirements, it is consistently among the first airlines to accommodate EU, UK and US immigration and enhanced security requirements.
The IOSA programme enables airlines to review their safety processes using a worldwide standard that has become the single internationally-accepted safety and security audit process for airlines.
Under IOSA, accredited auditors assess an airline's operational management and control systems, including the areas of corporate organisation and management, flight operations, operational control, flight dispatch, aircraft engineering and maintenance, cabin operations, aircraft ground handling, cargo operations and operational security.
Qatar Airways, based in Doha, Qatar, is one of the fastest-growing airlines operating one of the youngest and most technologically advanced fleets in the world.
