Alaska Airlines Renewed On IOSA Registry After Completing International Safety Audit

SEATTLE, Oct. 30,2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Alaska Airlines today announced it successfully completed the International Air Transport Association's Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) and has been renewed on the IOSA Registry. The airline has been on the registry since 2006.

"Ensuring the safety of our customers and employees is core to our responsibility," said Brad Tilden, Alaska Airlines CEO. "Meeting this internationally recognized benchmark is one of many ways we maintain our unwavering commitment to safety."

The IOSA Registry is a key element of IATA's efforts to promote global airline operational safety. To achieve IOSA registration, Alaska Airlines satisfied more than 900 standards in eight operational areas, including flight operations, operational control, flight dispatch, aircraft engineering and maintenance, cabin operations, aircraft ground handling, cargo operations and operational security.

"The IOSA audit is a comprehensive assessment that validates the safety, quality and operating standards in place at Alaska Airlines," said Tom Nunn, Alaska Airlines' vice president of safety.

The IOSA program contributes to improved aviation safety worldwide by establishing a universally accepted set of safety audit standards. Preparing for and completing IOSA registration is a condition of membership in IATA, which represents more than 94 percent of international airline passenger traffic.

Alaska Airlines, a subsidiary of Alaska Air Group (NYSE: ALK), together with its partner regional airlines, serves 95 cities through an expansive network in Alaska, the Lower 48, Hawaii, Canada and Mexico. Alaska Airlines has ranked "Highest in Customer Satisfaction Among Traditional Network Carriers" in the J.D. Power and Associates North America Airline Satisfaction Study SM for six consecutive years from 2008 to 2013. For reservations, visit www.alaskaair.com.
