Trivandrum: Air India SATS Airport Services Pvt. Ltd. (AISATS), a leading airport services company, has been honoured with the IATA Safety Audit for Ground Operations (ISAGO) registration to recognize their commitment towards adhering to safety standards at Trivandrum International Airport (TRV).
AISATS is the only ground service provider in TRV to be ISAGO registered. This registration is an extension to the ISAGO registration obtained earlier this year at the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport, Hyderabad (HYD) and their Headquarters in Mumbai.
ISAGO registration recognises ground service providers who meets IATA’s industry-proven quality audit principles and is structured to ensure a standardized audit with consistent results across ground handlers. The ISAGO process ensures safer ground operations, fewer accidents and injuries, uniform audit processes, and effectively improves quality standards and enhances the understanding of high risk areas within ground operations. The key disciplines considered by IATA while certifying AISATS are, Organization and Management (ORM), Load Control (LOD), Passenger and Baggage Handling (PAB), Aircraft Handling and Loading (HDL), Aircraft Ground Movement (AGM), and Cargo and Mail Handling (CGM).
Speaking on this occasion Willy Ko, CEO, AISATS said, “At AISATS, safety and security is one of our core values and is paramount in our daily operations. While we are always working hard to maintain our world-class service standards, we also firmly believe in ensuring that the yardstick for safety is maintained at its apex and the ISAGO registration reiterates our commitment in that direction. In early 2015, we achieved this certification for adhering to safety standards at Hyderabad and Mumbai and have now accomplished it for our business units at both Bangalore and Thiruvananthapuram.”
AISATS is a 50:50 joint venture between Air India Limited, and SATS Limited, a leading gateway services and food solutions provider in Asia. As part of the Indian Government’s initiative to upgrade its airports to world-class facilities and attract more airlines to fly into India, AISATS was formed with the vision to provide world-class airport services in ground and cargo handling that exceed customers’ expectations.
