Cabo Verde air carrier undergoes international audit

19 August 2015

Cabo Verde’s (Cape Verde’s) flagship airline TACV is being audited by the International Air Transport Association (IATA), to assess compliance with operating requirements, the airline’s Director of Quality and Enterprise Security said Tuesday.

Hélder Cruz told Cabo Verde Radio (RCV) that the audit, which will be underway until 21 August, is a requirement for all companies that are members of IATA, and takes place every two years.

The inspections will focus on maintenance services, ground and flight operations, cabin services, flight dispatch, freight, general organisation and security services.

Hélder Cruz said TACV was working for a “good rating” in the audit and to meet all requirements proposed by IATA, which produces a manual that includes all parameters – about 1,000 – based on the standards of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).

TACV, founded in 1958 and with operations based at Nelson Mandela International Airport, in Praia, is Cabo Verde’s flagship carrier and the online airline to offer domestic flights in the archipelago. (macauhub/CV)
