Air Zimbabwe passes IATA safety audit
4 December 2019

Air Zimbabwe passed the IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA).

Air Zimbabwe is the national carrier of Zimbabwe. It was founded as Air Rhodesia in 1967 and was renamed Air Zimbabwe in 1980 when the Republic of Zimbabwe was formed. The airline currently has two Airbus A320s, two Boeing 737-200s, two Boeing 767-200s and two Xian MA60s. Of those aircraft, only one Boeing 767 is currently operational. The airline is preparing a Boeing 737 to resume service.

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.
