By Aaron Humes: Tropic Air has successfully completed the International Air Transport Association (IATA) Standard Safety Assessment (ISSA), which is an internationally recognized evaluation of the safety practices and management of the airline.
ISSA evaluates safety practices and management in flight and ground operations, maintenance, cargo, security and aeronautical safety.
Tropic Air joined IATA’s ISSA Registry in 2015, and was the second airline to be registered. It is also the first airline to complete the renewal assessment, which will now be valid for two years, until 7 May 2018.
“We are very pleased to receive the ISSA registration, and it is a very proud moment for us to have demonstrated that our airline operates according to the most stringent standards in our industry segment. Successfully completing the assessment is a testament to the rigorous work put in every day keeping customers and each other safe”, said Steve Schulte, CEO of Tropic Air.
The complete registration certificate can be found by visiting IATA’s website http://www.iata.org/whatwedo/safety/audit/issa/Pages/operator.aspx?c=TOS
The airline was established in 1979 and last year flew hundreds of thousands of passengers and pounds of cargo throughout Belize and to regional destinations in Mexico, Honduras and Guatemala.
