Rwandair gets ISAGO certification for Kigali ground service team

Posted 8 November 2016 · Add Comment

RwandAir, has achieved certification of the IATA Safety Audit for Ground Operations (ISAGO) and following the IATA audit is now a certified ground service provider (GSP) under the ISAGO registry for two years until July 2018.


The audit was conducted on RwandAir ground operations in July this year by Wake QA, an IATA approved audit organisation. The audit was concluded with minimal findings and observations, the airline said.
ISAGO is an IATA standardised and structured audit programme for GSPs that is modelled on the success of IOSA (IATA Operational Safety Audit). The audit
uses internationally recognised ground operational standards that are aimed at reducing risk and cost as well as minimising damages and incidents.
“With this achievement, RwandAir will provide enhanced ground-handling services with high safety standards to its customer airlines and private jets operating at Kigali International Airport, while maximizing productivity,” said John Mirenge, the airline’s CEO
