Universal Aviation UK, based at London-Stansted International Airport (EGSS) has earned Stage 2 registration under the International Standard for Business Aviation Handling (IS-BAH).

“We are honored to be the first Universal Aviation® location to earn IS-BAH Stage 2 registration, as it demonstrates our never-ending commitment to safety and reducing our customers’ operating risk and stress,” said Sean Raftery, Senior Director of International Business – Northern Europe and Africa, Universal.

The International Standard for Business Aircraft Handling (IS-BAH) is a set of global industry best practices for business aviation ground handlers, which features at its core a safety management system (SMS). The IS-BAH follows the structure of the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO) Program and incorporates the NATA Safety 1st Ground Audit Program. IS-BAH is the global industry standard for handlers and operators around the world to meet the coming SMS requirements from the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).

Universal Aviation UK earned its IS-BAH Stage 1 registration in 2017.

“We want to pass our congratulations to the whole Universal Aviation Stansted team in achieving IS-BAH Stage 2 recently,” said IS-BAH program director Terry Yeomans. “Stage 2 shows that the team’s firm commitment to the management of safety to both their staff and customers at the start of this process two years ago are showing positive signs of maturity and continual improvement throughout the scope of activities offered at London Stansted to the business aviation community.”
