“Flight safety has always been and will always remain the UIA top priority, ‒ noted Evgeniya Satska, UIA Communications Director. – In 2005, UIA underwent its first IOSA audit. We undergo the IOSA audit every two years and each time we receive the new IOSA Certificate. This year we have received our 8th Certificate. The IOSA standards are being continuously upgraded and adjusted, while security requirements are becoming more stringent. We are proud that every time our company manages to undergo such a serious international audit almost flawlessly.”
