Etihad Airways said on Wednesday it has passed the biennial operational safety audit by the International Air Transport Association (IATA).

The Abu Dhabi-based airline met all the required standards — with the highest results of zero findings and zero observations — after the safety audit team examined Etihad’s safety procedures in detail.

The audit by IATA seeks to ensure that airlines are compliant with safety requirements and recommended practices. It is mandatory for IATA member airlines, and reviews standards in various operational areas.
