Tbilisi International Airport obtained an ISAGO certificate confirming the highest level of ground handling safety


Tbilisi International Airport has been registered and accredited under the IATA Safety Audit for Ground Operations program (ISAGO), covering the following disciplines: Organization and Management, Load Control, Passenger and Baggage Handling, Aircraft Handling and Loading and Aircraft Ground Movement.

ISAGO accreditation proves that, Tbilisi International Airport provides ground handling service in accordance with international standards and best practices, fully obeying IATA standards and recommendations.

Tbilisi International Airport will become even more attractive for both existing and new airlines interested in the Georgian aviation market, as having the ISAGO certificate is a guarantee of their safe operation, high quality and compliance with international standards. A group of employees from the relevant departments of Tbilisi International Airport was involved in the accreditation process, and as a result of their efforts and effective work, the certification was completed within the prescribed time frame.

The IATA Safety Audit for Ground Operations (ISAGO) is an industry program for the global oversight of ground handling service providers. ISAGO ensures the standardization of operational procedures and increases the harmonization of best practices in the Aviation Industry.

In 2023, the accreditation process began at Tbilisi International Airport, as a result of which IATA auditors conducted a full-scale audit of ground handling processes. Isago accreditation is granted to the company for a period of 2 years, after the expiration of which a recertification audit will be conducted by IATA.  Possession of accreditation today is even more significant, since the main shareholder of the managing company of Tbilisi International Airport became the French ADP group, which operates in 110 airports around the world.
