Safety is one of Abyssinian Flight Services’ core business functions. We are committed to developing, implementing, maintaining and constantly improving strategies and processes to ensure that all our aviation activities take place under balanced allocation of resources, aimed at achieving the highest level of safety performance and meeting national and international standards.

All levels of management are accountable for the delivery of this highest level of safety performance, starting with the Managing Director of Abyssinian Flight Services.

Our commitment is to:


  1. Support the management of safety through the provision of appropriate human and financial resources that will result in an organizational culture that fosters safe practices, encourages effective safety reporting and communication, and actively manages safety with the same attention to results as financial management;
  2. Enforce the management of safety among the primary responsibility of all managers;
  3. Clearly define for all staff their accountabilities and responsibilities for the delivery of safety performance;
  4. Establish and implement hazard identification and risk management processes in order to eliminate or mitigate the risks associated in all our activities as air service provider to a point which is As Low As Reasonably Practicable;
  5. Comply with and wherever possible exceed legislative and regulatory requirements and standards;
