Jet Aviation has announced that it has received International Standard for Business Aircraft Handling (IS-BAH) Stage 1 Registration from the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC) for its Amsterdam and Rotterdam FBOs in The Netherlands. It intends to achieve IS-BAH Stage 2 Registration for both FBOs by December 2021.
As a safety management system, IS-BAH establishes criteria to ensure handling systems, processes and practices meet rigorous safety and security standards.
“These registrations demonstrate Jet Aviation’s ongoing commitment to the highest safety standards for its customers and employees,” said Edwin Niemoller, Director FBO Operations and GM Netherlands. “I couldn’t be prouder of the team for their unwavering professionalism, which was acknowledged by customers in the 2019 AIN survey and is now being recognized by the industry.”
VP Regional Operations Europe & GM Geneva, Cyril Martiniere, felt these new registrations highlighted the team’s flexibility and willingness to adapt to changing demands. “Our highly skilled team of handling professionals in the Netherlands has long been recognized for its ability to provide excellent service quickly and efficiently. That they were able to meet all the rigorous standards for IS-BAH registration while simultaneously integrating operational procedures with Jet Aviation is a real testament to their drive and dedication.”
Jet Aviation expanded its network to The Netherlands with the acquisition of the KLM Jet Center in October 2018. Together, the Amsterdam and Rotterdam FBOs support more than 7,500 movements per year.
