MIASCOR Groundhandling Corporation, an aviation ground service provider in the Philippines, was again awarded the IATA Safety Audit for Ground Operations (ISAGO) certificate for its operations at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport.
“This recognition is testament to the company’s unwavering commitment to safety and adherence to global best practices and quality standards,” said Tristan Dumlao, MIASCOR CEO.
ISAGO is an internationally recognized and accepted system for assessing the operational management and control systems of an organization that provides ground-handling services for airlines. The standardized system offers benefits to airlines, ground handling companies, supervisory authorities, and airport managers. These benefits are the reduction of risk in ground operations, elimination of redundant audits, reduced costs, better understanding of high-risk areas, and support to implementation of Safety Management System by the providers.
MIASCOR Groundhandling is again ISAGO-registered in the following disciplines: Organization and Management, Load Control, Passenger and Baggage Handling, Aircraft Handling and Loading, Aircraft Ground Movement, and Cargo and Mail Handling.
The company is a ground handling agency in the Philippines and is a member of the IATA Ground Handling Council. It was organized in 1974 to provide airlines with a choice of a viable alternative ground handler. It operates in key airports in Manila, Cebu, Davao, Clark, and Kalibo. MIASCOR Ground Handling is part of the portfolio of services of MIASCOR Aviation Services that employs over 3,500 employees.
