“ Safety is of the utmost importance and is given absolute priority within the organisation. ”
Based in the Southern Highlands of Papua New Guinea, South West Air is a sister company of CPS Ltd (previously Wild Cat Developments), the leading mineral and petroleum exploration & support company in the PNG Highlands. With the assistance of SWA, CPS Ltd has a fully developed Civil and Construction division providing a fully integrated operation offering a full suite of services from landowner negotiations, line cutting, initial earthworks through to camp build and maintenance and other drilling support services.
SWA has been operating in the Gulf, Western and Southern Highlands Province since 1991 and offers fixed wing and helicopter charter operations from Port Moresby and Mendi, where our custom built hangar and maintenance facilities are based.
Our fixed wing aircraft are multi-engine and specifically configured to service remote strips in PNG with maximum payloads to ensure clients' expectations are met. With the addition of SWA helicopters supporting the operations, nowhere in PNG is now considered remote with operations into any area of PNG and international services as required.
All aircraft are maintained to a high standard and undergo rigorous scrutiny and audit processes imposed both by the clientele and regulatory authorities. Our flight and maintenance crews are some the best in the country, with extensive experience working within PNG's demanding environments.
