Safety Comes First

Safi Airways is committed in maintaining uncompromising international safety standards. It was the first Afghan carrier to operate in compliance with EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) requirements and was the first Afghan carrier certified as complying with the strict IOSA (IATA Operational Safety Audit), which is a matter of pride for an Afghan company.

Moreover, Safi Airways is an United Nations (UN) approved  carrier to and from Afghanistan.
