PNG Air maintains gold safety registration

This follows a recent renewal audit.

BARS was developed by mining resource companies and the Flight Safety Foundation to establish a common safety audit standard for suppliers of aviation services to the resource industry.  

It provides industry companies with the level of safety assurance they require, measured against very stringent standards.  

Only eight audit companies worldwide are approved to perform BARS audits.
