IATA Terminates Aeropostal after IOSA

IATA seems to be getting serious about terminating airlines that fail its safety audits. So when the dreaded IOSA team shows up on your doorstep - you had better get your ducks in a row. So this year Aeropostal has been added to the list. They join the following:

2008: Air Botswana, Air Malawi, Air Tanzania, TAAG, Rwandair Express, Tassili Airlines, Varig Log and Zambian Airways.

In addition Ariana Afghan Airlines, Solomon Airlines and Palestinian Airlines resigned in 2007.

Those terminated in 2006 and 2007 were Aero Asia, Aero California, Air Marshall Islands, AVIATECA, Samara Airlines, Turkmenistan Airlines, Albanian Airways, Iraqi Airways and Lloyd Aero Boliviano.

Good for IATA for making this a matter of principal and finally putting teeth into their programs.
