Safety

Safety

At Sunwest we are committed to the safety and security of our passengers. Safety is a key value that we share with our customers and we make it a primary focus in our daily activities.

We meet or exceed all Transport Canada regulations regarding commercial aircraft operations and we are regularly audited by both government and private agencies.

As one of Canada’s few ARG/US Platinum and IS-BAO Stage 3 certified charter operators, Sunwest has been and continues to be an industry leader in maintaining the highest standards in safety and service.

We continuously foster a culture of safety and ensure the safety standards required by the sectors we service - personal, commercial, oil and gas, industrial transportation, and cargo - translate across our entire organization and fleet. This means that our passengers can trust that a Sunwest flight is a safe flight.
