During the end of 2007 Skyways Express was audited by IOSA (IATA Operational Safety Audit) and received the certification shortly thereafter. By doing this Skyways Express was formally accepted by IOSA into a new, higher, airline standard.
(The IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) program is an internationally recognized and accepted evaluation system designed to assess the operational management and control systems of an airline.) To maintain the status on the IOSA Registry, airlines must undergo, and complete, an IOSA audit every two years.
