Beond Receives ETOPS Certification

In a significant advancement Beond has been granted the Extended-range Twin-engine Operational Performance Standards (ETOPS) certification.

The ETOPS certification is a regulatory endorsement that allows twin-engine aircraft to fly routes that, at some points, are more than 60 minutes away from the nearest suitable airport. This certification is crucial for airlines operating over vast expanses of water or remote regions, as it ensures that the aircraft can safely continue to a distant alternate airport in the event of an engine failure.

Beond latest achievement extends beyond the standard 180-minute ETOPS certification, allowing its aircraft to operate on even longer routes without the need for a nearby diversion airport.

The certification process involves testing and demonstration of the airframe and engine’s ability to perform within a fixed failure margin for a specified period. The successful acquisition of the ETOPS certification by Beond not only enhances the operational capabilities of its fleet but also opens up new possibilities for more direct and fuel-efficient flight paths across the globe.
