After being grounded for less than 24 hours, some West Wind flights are back in the sky.
The Saskatoon-based airline confirmed Wednesday voluntarily grounded its fleet pending the results of an investigation into “potential administrative discrepancies related to training records.”
“A number of planes are back in service today,” West Wind’s vice president of business development and customer relations, Dennis Baranieski said in a statement. “We anticipate having the rest of our fleet in the next few days.”
Baranieski said he can’t give an exact timeline because he doesn’t want to mislead people.
West Wind utilized its wholly-owned subsidiary, Transwest Air, and industry partners to ensure safe, uninterrupted services to its customers.
On the company website, West Wind said it provides air charter services for executives, remote workforces, patient and medical teams along with cargo and leisure travellers.
The company was established in 1983 and operates out of several bases in Saskatchewan.
