Air Zimbabwe's Iata membership on the line

Cape Town - Air Zimbabwe has been given 90 days to renew its International Air Transport Association (Iata) operational safety audit (Iosa) or lose its membership of the body.

Iata said the beleaguered national carrier of Zimbabwe's membership has as yet not been revoked, and it remains a member of the global aviation body.

Iata represents more than 200 airlines from around the globe and uses the Iosa certification as the benchmark for safety management in airlines.

To be a member of Iata, an airline has to remain on the Iosa register and to achieve this, it has to submit to and pass the biennial Iata operational safety audit.  

Mike Higgins, Iata regional vice-president for Africa, said Iata remains committed to developing aviation on the African continent.

“Safety is a key component to ensuring Zimbabwe can benefit from all that safe skies can bring.

"Iosa certification has improved the hull loss rate of aircraft significantly and is an important element for building safe, sustainable aviation in Africa.

"As always, Iata is ready to assist Air Zimbabwe wherever possible in renewing its Iosa certification and continuing to benefit from the financial and other services Iata members participate in," said Higgins.
