Jet Aviation has achieved Stage 2 registration under the International Business Aviation Council’s (IBAC) International Standard for Business Aviation Handling (IS-BAH) for 20 of its worldwide FBOs. IS-BAH program director Terry Yeomans presented the Zurich-based company with the 20 certificates today at the Middle East Business Aviation Association (MEBAA) show in Dubai. Included in the group are the General Dynamics subsidiary’s two facilities in Dubai and three in Saudi Arabia.

“This remarkable achievement demonstrates Jet Aviation’s ongoing commitment to the highest safety standards for its customers and employees,” said Yeomans. IS-BAH is a voluntary safety management system-based program that establishes criteria for best handling processes and practices to make sure FBOs meet rigorous safety and security standards.

“Two years ago, we announced that we had earned IS-BAH standard registration at 11 of our facilities,” noted Jet Aviation senior vice president for EMEA regional operations Stefan Benz. "Today we have achieved Stage 2 at nearly double that number. This is a great credit to our teams of FBO professionals and underscores Jet’s culture of global safety.”
