Geneva Airpark obtains IS-BAH certification for ground handling services

Geneva Airpark has obtained the IS-BAH label, which will guarantee quality service and safe ground handling operations for business aviation.

The IS-BAH standards are developed by the Independent Broad-based Anti-corruption Commission (IBAC) and the National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA), which are based on compliance with good practices offering international recognition.

Founded in 2009, Geneva Airpark offers parking service for all business aircraft at Geneva International Airport, demonstrating the quality of its services by meeting the IS-BAH standard compliance criteria, it proves a high degree of maturity for its Security Management System (SMS).

Sophie Mabire, general manager of Geneva Airpark, said: “In our philosophy, the level of security does not depend on the size of a company and its implementation allows for no compromise in terms of our client and our partners’ expectations. The safety culture within Geneva Airpark, which is present in jobs and responsibilities at all levels, guarantees rigor and professionalism.”

Its 10,000-square-metre covered hangar occupies a privileged location, which is close to the business aviation terminal C3, its agents and maintenance centers. Aircraft can land and take off quickly and autonomously on its tarmac because of its private departure and arrival positions.

Geneva Airpark is now among the 150 FBOs in the world to have received this certification since its creation in 2014. With nine certified companies, Switzerland and the United Kingdom hold third position in the IS-BAH ranking.
