Aviation Safety Asia to offer $15,000 incentive to encourage Covid-19 vaccination

To support the global aviation industry and encourage the re-opening of international borders, Aviation Safety Asia has announced it is offering a USD $15,000 incentive to encourage vaccination participation.

The incentive is open worldwide to any business and general aviation jet operator, including and extended to special mission, aeromedical, and any other jet aviation entity that is eligible for accreditation under the ICAO International Standard for Business Aviation Operations (IS-BAO).

The initiative is offered in the form of one complimentary renewal accreditation audit, which is usually conducted over two-to-three days.

The audit covers the full breadth of aviation management company operations, including safety management systems (SMS), security, and aircraft maintenance.

To participate, operators must evidence that their full staff is fully vaccinated against Covid-19 by 1 August 2021 whereby a winner will be randomly selected.

Dane Williams, director of aviation safety Asia, commented: “Increasing the vaccination rates of aviation staff is a key element to ensure the safety of all in our industry and those we serve.

“We see increased vaccination as being fundamental to protecting against the global pandemic.

“We are eager to do our part to support those operators that have been negatively financially impacted at this time.

“We want nothing more than for the international borders to re-open safely, for economies to be rebuilt, and jobs protected.”
