Signature Flight Support’s locations in Italy are the first in the region to earn The International Standard for Business Aircraft Handling (IS-BAH) certification, the industry leading accreditation and global standard for best business aviation safety practices. Milan-Linate (LIN), Milan-Malpensa (MXP), Rome Ciampino (CIA) and Venice (VCE) all passed the highly stringent, week-long safety management audit following an external assessment by a team of IBAC-accredited (International Business Aviation Council) auditors.
“We are proud to announce that we have accomplished the first IS-BAH certification within Italy, and we look forward to bringing more of our European locations through the accreditation process" said Evie Freeman, Managing Director, Signature Flight Support - EMEA. "Safety is our core value and lived by every one of our employees. The audits took several days to complete, but several months of preparation had taken place before that by our dedicated safety team and the FBO management team for each site."
“Congratulations to entire Signature Flight Support Italy teams for achieving IS-BAH certification,” commented Terry Yeomans, IS-BAH program director for IBAC. “All of us at IBAC commend Signature for this accomplishment and recognize their dedication to a safety culture that embraces global industry best practices for business aviation ground handlers.”
Signature Flight Support is forging ahead with the accreditation process for its global FBO network. Signature’s locations at London Luton Airport (LTN), Nice (NCE), London Biggin Hill (BQH), Dublin (DUB), Shannon (SNN) are also IS-BAH accredited.
