HIGHEST SAFETY STANDARDS FOR AIR CHARTER FLIGHTS : AERLINK IS BARS GOLD STANDARD

Updated: Feb 2

Safety is everything in aviation and holding Basic Aviation Risk Standard (BARS) Gold confirms Aerlink's absolute commitment to safety. There is no higher standard.

The Basic Aviation Risk Standard (BARS) Gold shows Aerlink's commitment to safe chartered air services.
Aerlink operates air charter services to the BARS Gold standard.

BARS is a global aviation safety assessment and audit protocol designed explicitly for charter airlines that often fly in challenging and remote environments. BARS is based on the International Civil Aviation Organization's (ICAO) Annex 19, which assists airlines in managing and mitigating safety risks. Aerlink’s Safety Management System meets the requirements of ICAO Annex 19.


Gold status in the BARS Program, or lesser tiers for other charter operators, is determined by audit report findings. Achieving BARS Gold Status is no easy task. It involves compliance with a variety of standards and passing rigorous assessments to progress through Green, to Silver to Gold BARS status. But it's worth it. Aerlink's BARS Gold signals to their employees that safety is our priority and fundamental to the airline's workplace culture. It also sends a message to every current and prospective customer – this is an airline that values and is committed to safety above all else.


What do Basic Aviation Risk Standards (BARS) mean?


The BAR standard is a risk-based model that considers and identifies potential threats. Some of those threats are relatively common. Others, like a dust storm out in Queensland's southwest, are more unique to isolated or challenging Australian locations. The BARS program allows an organisation to take that threat and develop a suite of associated mitigation controls and recovery measures.


With a FIFO charter air services client list of mining and resource companies, Government Air Charter Contracts and repeat on-demand plane charter for premium Australian travel agencies, Aerlink is well versed in flying to out-of-the-way locations and you can rely on its processes, the World’s Best construction of its ATR aircraft and its employees' expertise in maintaining and operating them. Maintaining BARS Gold affirms this.


Safety trumps all else at Aerlink


Air charter clients demand the highest standards from their charter plane operator – the safety of their employees and the reputation of their business depend on it. Australia's charter airlines, particularly Aerlink, have a proud reputation for their relentless and unwavering focus on safety. Safety trumps all else; deadlines, costs, and other demands. It's why companies like Theiss, Bellevue Gold, Covalent Lithium, and Chinova have chosen Aerlink as their air charter operator.


Safety is a culture


Achieving BARS Gold Status is no easy task. It involves compliance with a variety of standards and passing rigorous assessments to progress through Green, to Silver to Gold BARS status. But it's worth it. Aerlink's BARS Gold signals to their employees that safety is paramount and fundamental to the airline's workplace culture. It also sends a message to every current and prospective customer – this is an airline that values and is committed to safety above all else.
