Advocating on behalf of Canada’s largest passenger airlines

The NACC seeks positive policy, regulatory and legislative changes to increase the aviation sector’s competitiveness.

We advocate for safe, accessible, environmentally responsible and competitive air travel by promoting the development of sound public policy and engaging with government and industry stakeholders. 

These are our priorities: 

Safe and Secure Air Travel

Nothing is more important than delivering our passengers safely to their destination. We are proud that Canada is recognized as a world leader in aviation safety and is home to one of the world’s safest air transportation systems. This achievement is the result of a proactive and comprehensive approach to safety adopted by all industry stakeholders.

Environmentally Responsible Air Travel

Canada’s airlines have a strong and genuine commitment to reducing the industry’s environmental footprint, including fuel efficiency improvement, emissions reduction, noise abatement, waste reduction, and best practices for aircraft de-icing activities.

Fostering Competitive Air Travel

Supporting and implementing an efficient operating and cost framework for Canada’s air carriers is essential to the economic well-being of our communities.


NACC members are committed to removing barriers and advancing accessibility in air travel by delivering on the goals set out in each of their respective Accessibility Plans and by collaborating with government and stakeholders within the aviation ecosystem towards a more accessible air travel service.


In April 2023, the Presidents and CEOs of NACC member airlines jointly committed to taking steps to improve accessibility and services for persons with disabilities when travelling by air. They recognized the importance of facilitating a safe, seamless journey and to ensuring that air transportation be accessible to all.  NACC’s Accessibility Statement is viewable here.
