Egyptian airline Petroleum Air Service (PAS) passed the IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA).

PAS was founded in 1982 to provide oil industry support services and charter flights in Egypt. It operates a fleet of two CRJ-900’s and five DHC-8-300’s.

In addition the airline has a large number of helicopters: Bell 206, Bell 212, Bell 412, AgustaWestland AW139, and Eurocopter EC-135’s.

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.
