Our core value of Safety is paramount in everything we do. Safety, security and compliance are priorities across all our operations. We are committed to providing a safe, healthy and secure workplace for our nearly 4,100 employees worldwide while safely operating more than 68,000 flights annually to airports in countries around the world.
We believe that safety and regulatory compliance can be achieved through safety management, with the implementation and continuous improvement of our formal Safety Management System (SMS). Atlas maintains an industry-best-practice safety program that meets or exceeds all Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and International Air Transport Association (IATA) standards. Our SMS supports our culture of safety through four tenets: Safety Policy, Safety Risk Management, Safety Assurance and Safety Promotion. Ongoing training for our more than 2,400 pilots and 1,600 ground staff is at the heart of our ability to maintain safe operations and engage our employees.
