Vistara completes IATA's safety audit in a step towards flying overseas

Full service carrier today said it has successfully completed the International Air Transport Association's Operational Safety Audit (IOSA), which puts it in the category of one of the safest airlines.

Following the completion of key global safety audit, conducted from August 28 to September 1, joined IATA's Registry on September 25, the airline said in a release.


The area of audit included corporate organisation and management, flight, cabin, ground handling and cargo operations, operational control, aircraft engineering and maintenance and operational security, it said.

"Achieving this milestone in so little time in our journey of less than three years is a testament to our commitment to delivering a safe and seamless flying experience to millions of our customers," Chief Executive Officer Phee Teik Yeo said.

The total accident rate for carriers between 2011 and 2015 was 3.3 times lower than the rate for non-operators.

The Delhi-based airline currently operates over 660 weekly flights to 21 destinations with a fleet of 16 Airbus A320 aircraft.
