DC Aviation Al-Futtaim’s Parent Company Receives IOSA Certification
(30 June 2014)


As part of its commitment to provide the highest levels of service to its customers, DC Aviation has announced it has successfully completed IATA’S Operational Safety Audit(IOSA) – usually considered as the quality standard for commercial airlines.

With the successful completion of the audit, the company becomes one of only eight business jet operators worldwide to receive this certification. The IOSA audit reviews the operational safety and quality assurance of an airline’s operational management and control systems. IOSA-registered airlines are transparent in their processes and verifiably guarantee the highest safety standards.

“Our goal is to exceed domestic and international regulatory quality and safety requirements,” said Michael Kuhn, Managing Director of DC Aviation. “The IOSA standard is the leading and most sophisticated audit available,” he added.

Holger Ostheimer, General Manager of the joint venture between DC Aviation and Al-Futtaim said: “For years, many scheduled and charter airlines have considered this audit to be a general standard requirement, though this is not the case for business jet operators. The successful completion of this certification clearly indicates the mission of DC Aviation’s operations in Dubai to provide the highest levels of services to its customers.”

As part of the audit process, five auditors reviewed over 1,000 standards and procedures at DC Aviation in all areas related to flight safety and airworthiness.  The departments with the most attention dedicated were maintenance, flight operations, quality and safety management systems as well as security and ground operations before the certificate could be granted. It is unique for a business jet operation to operate in accordance with the same standards as the international flag carriers such as Emirates, Lufthansa or British Airways.

DC Aviation Al-Futtaim’s (DCAF) exclusive offering at its hub in Dubai World Central includes a 5,700 square meter state-of-the-art hangar,which has enough space to accommodate four ACJ or BBJ type aircraft of the heavy business jet category as well as two ultra-long range business jets such as the Falcon 7X, Bombardier Global Express or Gulfstream G550.

In addition to minimal taxiing time and unlimited slot availability, DCAF offers VIP customers the ultimate convenience of boarding their aircraft in a matter of seconds. Their private jet will be parked right in front of the lounge with security facilities including immigration, customs and security services are provided at the facility itself.

DCAF is a joint venture between Dubai-headquartered Al-Futtaim and Germany’s DC Aviation, one of the leading European business jet operators. For more information on DCAF’s hangar and services, please visit www.dc-aviation.ae or call +971 4 870 1880.
