Wings Air passes IATA safety audit
19 July 2017

The Indonesian airline Wings Air passed the  IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA).

The airline, formally named Wings Abadi Airlines,  commenced operations in 2003 as a regional wholly owned subsidiary of Lion Air. The airline currently operates a fleet of 20 ATR 72-500 and 31 ATR 72-600 aircraft.

Wings Air was added to the  EU Air Safety List  on 4 July 2007, banning it from operating in Europe. By July 2017 it has not yet been removed from that list.

The IOSA programme is an evaluation system designed to assess the operational management and control systems of an airline. IOSA uses internationally recognised quality audit principles and is designed to conduct audits in a standardised and consistent manner. It was created in 2003 by IATA.  All IATA members are IOSA registered and must remain registered to maintain IATA membership.
