World Fuel Services has partnered with the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC) so members of its sponsored Air Elite network of independent FBOs can achieve certification under the International Standard for Business Aviation Handling (IS-BAH), the Miami-based fuel provider announced at NBAA’s Schedulers and Dispatchers Conference. IS-BAH, the recently introduced code of industry best practices, is self-administered, and prospective applicants must successfully undergo an independent audit before approval.
Several members of the group are currently working toward approval, and the new deal will allow all 51 Air Elite locations to attend IS-BAH workshops to assist in reaching that goal. “The Air Elite Network has set the bar high for its members in the area of service standards and quality since the network’s inception,” said John Rau, World Fuel’s executive vice president of aviation. “Air Elite’s goal of bringing each member up to speed with the new IS-BAH requirements furthers the network’s commitment to quality and safety excellence.”
