TAG Aviation Macau’s Fixed Base Operation (FBO) has been awarded the International Standard for Business Aircraft Handling (IS-BAH) Stage 1 certificate of registration from the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC).
The IS-BAH standard, which focuses on the refueling, ground handling and storing of general aviation aircraft, is a set of global industry’s best practices in safety management and risk mitigation for business aviation ground handlers.
TAG Aviation Macau received the accreditation at EBACE in Geneva this week.
The accreditation process involves a complete audit of the FBO’s safety management systems, emergency and security procedures, organisational structure, training protocols and operating procedures.
Certificates of registration are issued by IBAC to FBOs that have successfully demonstrated conformity to the industry’s best practice standards through completion of a Third Party external audit by the IBAC accredited auditor.
“We are extremely proud to have become the first IS-BAH accredited FBO based in Macau; it demonstrates to our customers that the TAG Macau FBO team, from ground handling to maintenance services, is totally committed to providing the highest quality of services while adhering to the most stringent safety standards,” said Rita Tam, general manager, TAG Macau FBO. “This achievement marks a significant milestone for our FBO’s first six months of operations.”
“This beautifully appointed VIP facility unquestionably upholds the same high standards of the wider TAG Aviation Group,” said Dane Williams, director, Aviation Safety Asia. “The TAG Macau FBO team should be very proud to have become the first FBO based in Macau to receive IS-BAH accreditation and only the second FBO to obtain IS-BAH accreditation in the emerging Greater Bay Area of Southern China.”
