Imperial Cygnian Airways Ltd., trading as SwanWings (CSX: ICA), is the flag carrier airline of Cygnia and its largest airline by fleet size, international flights and international destinations. It is the oldest operating airline in the world, having been founded in March 1919 as the privately owned Kimberley and West Kimberley Aerial Service (KAWKAS); it began international passenger flights in May 1935.

The airline is based in the Swanstone suburb of Colburn with its main hub at Charles Kingsford-Smith International Airport. SwanWings has a 65% share of the Cygnian domestic market and carries 14.9% of all passengers travelling in and out of Cygnia. Its subsidiary SwanWings Regional provide services within Cygnia, flying under the SwanWings brand. SwanWings also owns the low-cost airline Skyrise, which operates both domestic and international services, and holds stakes in a number of its sister airlines.

Following nationalisation in 1932 by the Hellerist era, the airline was reorganised into Imperial Cygnian Airways. During World War III, the airline was taken over by the military and its assets used for the war effort. 1943 saw the return of the old government to power, and a swift recovery brought the airline back from the brink of folding. The airline acquired its current trading name in 1990, following a re-branding and "modernisation" program. Today, the Imperial Government still fully owns the airline, which is managed through the Ministry of Transportation's Department for Civil Aviation. SwanWings is credited with a major milestone in reconciliation between Cygnia and Australie when it announced that it would for the first time fly to New Amsterdam and New Utrecht, the former of which now serves as a secondary hub for the airline.
