ICAO and IATA, the two international institutions that regulate civil aviation throughout the work, have been, in late years, seriously concerned in ensuring that operations in this transportation subsector shall be increasingly safer. For that purpose ISAGO (IATA Safely Audit for Ground Operations) was created, which represents, in fact, a set of more than 200 procedures and norms that Ground Handling operators must comply with in the course of their activities, with a view to ensure that the assistance is, in fact, safe. Over the last 24 months, GHASSIST has been working together with the assistance of Ground Force, with a view to create the conditions for the certification of its operation, in what concerns the ISAGO system. Consequently, after a long period of preparation, and producing numerous manuals, the a adoption of a set of procedures, as well as activating a plan for intensive and comprehensive formation of its collaborators, a team of IATA auditors undertook a comprehensive audit of the system, over a period of a week and a half, during the month of October 15. Upon fulfilment of the recommendations, the system was validated and awarded ISAGO certification, in January 2016. ISAGO certification is an instrument that offers airline operators guarantee that assistance performed on the ground are within international mandatory norms, in what respects to Operational Safety.
Today, GHASSIST has the honour and the privilege of being part of a still restricted group of Ground Handling service operators in Africa, regarded as having its processes and procedures duly fine-tuned, as well as human resources with the desirable training, in order to satisfy the increasingly demanding Safety requirements in world civil aviation.
