AirAsia Malaysia has been officially recognised as an International Air Transport Association (IATA) Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) registered operator on September 12, 2018, following the completion of the IOSA audit.

AirAsia Malaysia is the third airline within AirAsia Group to achieve IOSA accreditation, after AirAsia X Malaysia in 2014 and AirAsia Indonesia last month.

IOSA is an internationally recognised and accepted evaluation system designed to assess an airline’s operational management and control systems and is regarded by the industry as the global benchmark for safety management.

The audit, conducted bienially, covers eight functional and operational areas: organisation and management system, flight operations, operational control and flight dispatch, aircraft engineering and maintenance, cabin operations, ground handling operations, cargo operations and security management.
