If you’re planning to jet out of town on a West Wind flight, you might want to check your ticket.
The Saskatoon-based airline confirmed Wednesday it has voluntarily grounded its fleet pending the results of an investigation into “potential administrative discrepancies related to training records.”
“West Wind will utilize its wholly-owned subsidiary, Transwest Air, and industry partners to ensure safe, uninterrupted services to its customers until this matter is concluded,” said Dennis Baranieski, the company’s vice-president of business development and customer relations, in a statement.
Baranieksi told 650 CKOM it’s not known when exactly the airline will resume operations, adding the company is “focusing on the results, not the timeline.”
He noted, however, the airline will provide an update to media if West Wind Aviation remains grounded for more than a couple of days.
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.
