RwandAir on course for an IATA Audit to get the IOSA certification

The IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) program is an internationally recognized and accepted evaluation system designed to assess the operational management and control systems of an airline. All IATA members are IOSA registered and must remain registered to maintain IATA membership.

 

Rwanda’s national airline RwandAir appears well on course to accomplish their IOSA Certification later this year, then bringing to a successful conclusion a process which started in mid 2012 and has since then advanced considerably.

 

A firm of aviation consultants from Germany, Aviation Quality Services or in short AQS, provided the airline with the initial guidance to launch the process in earnest and the appointment of Sonia Kamikazi, who was selected from among the management team to coordinate and drive the process has, according to several key staff at the airline, added focus and enabled the process to go forward at as fast a pace as can be expected. In fact, Mrs. Sonia, perhaps as a result of her dedicated work and enthusiasm to accomplish her tasks within the anticipated timeframe and within budgets, was honoured as RwandAir’s staff of the year 2013.

 

She in turn however credited her bosses, CEO John Mirenge and Deputy CEO Jean Paul Nyirubutama, and the heads of departments she interacts with on a daily basis as well as other staff of the airline for her personal success and the progress in her work to make RwandAir the latest airline to be IOSA certified.

 

Weekly meetings of all relevant departments which play a role in the certification process and will be subject to an audit by IATA, are now as a matter of course attended by the airline’s Deputy CEO Jean Paul Nyirubutama, a clear sign that the airline’s top management is keenly interested to ensure that there are neither bottlenecks nor other logistical challenges standing in the way of accomplishing this task in a timely manner.

 

RwandAir was in fact last year chosen by IATA to be part of a group of around 20 airlines to participate in a dedicated training programme related to the IOSA certification process. A ‘Mock Audit’ in August last year, at the end of the training programme, which looked at some 1.000 criteria, showed already very significant compliance.

 

Among the outstanding issues mentioned during a recent interview with Mrs. Kamikazi were regulatory approvals for all the various operating manuals which were submitted to the Rwanda Civil Aviation Authority in September last year and which were progressively vetted and then approved by Rwanda’s aviation regulatory body.
