Marking yet another major benchmark in its 53-year history, Solomon Airlines has been awarded its second IATA Operational Safety Audit Certification (IOSA).

Solomon Airlines’ Chief Executive Officer, CEO, Captain Ron Sumsum was quick to recognise each of the national carrier’s team members, all of whom he said played a key role in helping the airline achieve this highest international aviation safety standards.

Captain Sumsum says, the IOSA Certification previously achieved has already resulted in a much stronger commercial alliance with our fellow Melanesian regional partners Air Niugini and Air Vanuatu, both of which are IOSA-certified.

He adds having achieved this secondary IOSA certification, Solomon Airlines now begin the process of implementing the recently introduced procedure – the applied process intended to become a systematic approach in the way to do business in the future.

Captain Sumsum hopes the second IOSA achievement will be the catalyst for a review of the airline’s current associate membership with a view to achieving its goal of full IATA status in shorter time span.
