25 FEB 2006 Air-India fails IATA safety audit [to table of contents]
Air-India has failed a safety audit conducted by the International Air Transport Association (IATA), though it does not mean its aircraft are unsafe to fly. It failed IATA's International Operations Safety Audit (IOSA) certificate renewal audit reportedly because it required adoption of certain training modules, especially in the face of its ordering 50 new aircraft from Boeing. An official said: "The withdrawal of the certification is temporary. We have already made arrangements to comply with the directives by March end following which we are sure to get the certificate back". (PTI)
