The american FAA upgraded Mexico´s aviation to category one.

The FAA decission was announced in Mexico City by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGAC) of Mexico.

Mexico recovered its Category 1 of safety in air travel after the U.S. regulatory agency after a review concluded that the neighboring country meets the international standards established by ICAO.

The U.S Federal Aviation Administration (FAA, its acronym in English) announced on monday in a statement that has taken this decision after a review conducted in November. The FAA decission was announced in Mexico City by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGAC) of Mexico.

“Under the leadership of the Secretary of the Ministry of Communications and Transport Mr. Juan Molinar, and the Director General of the DGAC Mr. Héctor González Week, Mexico has made a significant progress upgrading from category 2 to category 1 ” the FAA said in its submission.

“At the request of Mexico, the FAA will provide technical assistance to support and sustain the changes that the civil aviation authority has made,” the U.S. agency.

The Category 1means that Mexicos civil aviation meet the standards set by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).

The lower level, category two, implies that a country has no laws or regulations necessary to oversee the airlines under minimum international standards established or that the agency responsible for the safet is failings in one or more areas.

U.S. demoted Mexico in July to level two, with the consequence that the U.S.  could not establish new routes to Mexico, although they could maintain the current service. With this recognition and upgrading, Mexican airlines can improve their service to the neighboring country.
