Blacklisted Avior Airlines passes IATA safety audit
19 March 2019

Avior Airlines, blacklisted in the European Union, passed the IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA).

Avior is a Venezuelan airline. It was founded in 1994 and currently has a fleet of five Boeing 737-200; eight Boeing 737-400; and one Airbus A340-300 aircraft.

On 30 November 2017 Avior was added to the List of air carriers banned in the European Union, stating that, at the time there was “clear evidence of serious safety deficiencies on the part of Avior Airlines.”

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.
