This paper focuses on providing a theoretical answer to the question, how can an air carrier effectively implement a Safety Management System (SMS) in its operations? The core assumption of this study is that the value of a wellstructured SMS in enhancing air carrier operational safety is axiomatic. We argue that air carriers, through the use of change management can successfully transform existing systems into SMS compliant systems.
