May 29, 2024

U.S.-based National Airlines celebrates another landmark achievement after being awarded the prestigious FAA Diamond Award for Excellence for the 11th consecutive year.

As one of the highest honors bestowed by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) on the Airline Technical Operations Team, this accolade recognizes outstanding standards in maintenance training and safety protocols, reinforcing the airline's commitment to operational excellence.

Over the years, 100% of National Airline's Aircraft Maintenance Technicians (AMT) have been undergoing streamlined training under the FAA Aviation Maintenance Technician Awards Program. Confirming eligibility for the coveted award, every National Airlines Aircraft Maintenance Technician completed the minimum annual training requirement by the FAA along with a "core course" according to the program guideline.

"As a global on-demand charter operator, it is of paramount importance and our primary priority to have the most efficient maintenance and safety systems and standards for our airline. I believe the latest FAA Diamond Award of Excellence is the most encouraging assurance of our processes and departments' global standards. The team leaders and technicians have guaranteed time and effort to follow the regulatory guidelines, engage in the needed training, and cultivate a culture of learning and development along with managing such a fast-growing fleet of freighters. Highest standards of operations are one of our core commitments to the industry and customers, and we strive to keep up our proven track record," said Christopher Alf, chairman, National Airlines.

Since 2013, the airline has been actively participating in the FAA program and reaffirming the highest maintenance standards, thereby being presented with the FAA Diamond Award of Excellence for consecutive years. With the fleet modernization plans initiated by the airline in recent years, currently, nine Boeing 747 freighters along with a passenger fleet of A330 and B757 aircraft are operated daily. The recent 11th landmark FAA acknowledgment is proof of the airline's incessant processes, maintenance quality, and uncompromised standards even with an expanding fleet. Striving to repeat such a unique recognition, the airline management, the maintenance department, and scores of highly trained technicians are being updated with all the regulatory and industry nuances, benchmarks, and requirements at regular intervals.
