October 12, 2017:
Premium Jet has become the first Swiss operator to achieve the ARGUS Platinum rating.
This rating is the highest level awarded by ARGUS to air charter operators who have implemented industry best safety practices relative to their operations and maintenance.
"The rating means for us that, beyond the already stringent standards of the Swiss aviation administration, we also satisfy an independent and freely chosen international quality and safety standard," says Premium Jet's safety and compliance manager Frank Wobith.
To achieve Platinum status, operators must pass an onsite safety audit, demonstrate a well-developed safety management system and emergency response plan, and exhibit detailed maintenance and operational records from within a 24-month period.
"For our customers, the ARGUS Platinum rating is an additional safety and quality attribute," adds Premium Jet MD Marcel Wepfer. "We are proud to be a part of this outstanding hallmark of quality."
