Mexico regains top air safety rating

Mexico regains top air safety rating

Friday, 15 Sep, 2023 0

Mexico has regained its Category 1 aviation rating from the Federal Aviation Administration.

It won back the highest safety rating after over two years downgraded to Category 2.

It is a result of ‘close work between the civil aviation authorities in both countries,’ the FAA said.

During the time it was downgraded Mexican airlines were forbidden from launching new routes to the US and collaborating on new codeshare flights.

Existing flights were not affected by the downgrade.

The news was hailed by the country’s airlines and aviation groups including the International Air Transport Association.

“The return to Category 1 allows us to reinforce this connectivity with one of our most important markets,” Aeromexico said.

Mexican airlines had a 35% share of cross border flights before the downgrade.

Since then it has shrunk by about half.
