Emirates has concluded its latest IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) with zero findings. This is comparable to a “perfect” score and is a significant achievement given the complexity of airline operations.

The IOSA programme is an internationally recognised and accepted evaluation system designed to assess the operational management and control systems of an airline. All IATA members are IOSA registered and must remain registered to maintain their IATA membership.

More than 1,000 standards and recommended practices were assessed by an IATA-accredited audit organisation over five days, to determine how well the airline’s operational management system complies with the IOSA Standard and Recommended Practices.

The results of the audit demonstrate the resilience of the airline’s systems and processes to ensure safe operational practices and the airworthiness of its modern fleet of Boeing 777s and Airbus A380s.

Sir Tim Clark, President of Emirates Airline said: “Safety is one of Emirates’ core values, and since day one, we’ve continually invested to ensure that our operations meet the most rigorous safety standards. To complete the IOSA audit with zero findings is a notable achievement especially in the context of our rapid operational upscaling post-pandemic, and the global nature of Emirates’ network. It’s a credit to our internal teams and external partners who contribute to Emirates’ safe transport of thousands of people and tonnes of goods around the globe each day. We’ll continue to work hard and contribute to ensuring a safe and sustainable aviation industry.”

The airline follows a robust safety culture across the organisation at all levels. The airline’s operational safety policies are consistently reviewed and amended whenever regulations are revised or new aircraft are introduced.

The Emirates Compliance Monitoring team continuously audits the airline’s systems and practices throughout its network against IOSA standards to identify and manage non-conformities. The airline’s senior executives are also briefed in regular management reviews on the organisation’s status of compliance to maintain the levels of safety and security in an ever-changing industry.
