The Ministry of Communications and Transportation has been promising Mexican officials to attend international experts in a timely manner since last Tuesday, following allegations of malpractice by the U.S. Department of Transportation (FAA) Federal Aviation Administration, which on Tuesday downgraded Mexico to Type 2 air safety.
The federal government argued that the review was used that month amid the outbreak of the COVID-19 epidemic, when the Federal Civil Aviation Agency (AFAC) was only operating with a quarter of its staff.
All of the observations put forward by U.S. officials were addressed, but a “substantial number of documentary evidence” was recently issued so that U.S. auditors would not have reviewed it in depth.
“In line with the review format established by the FAA, a significant number of documentary evidence has been presented over the past three weeks, so the evidence given by the body’s auditors may not have been fully and fully evaluated,” a statement said.
For example, the federal government said on May 20 that the Civil Aviation Act had been updated, approved by the Union Congress and published in the Federation’s official gazette.
He stressed that since the beginning of the administration of Andres Manuel Lopez O’Brien, appropriate steps have been taken to improve aviation operational safety.
He said the Mexican aeronautical authority in October 2019 was strengthened by the creation of the AFAC, which has the technical, operational and administrative autonomy to carry out its regulatory activities “effectively”.
Since last August, the company has integrated a state-of-the-art international computer platform, which he points out is possible to improve human resource management and reduce operating costs.
However, you agree to comply
Despite the arguments put forward in its report, the SCT proceeded to comply with the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) regulations and standards for operational safety monitoring.
The government said it would guarantee the safety and operation of national airlines to the United States, despite a ruling issued Tuesday by U.S. authorities.
He pointed out that national airlines operate with a higher level of security and quality of service compared to the international standards of any line flying in the United States.
He pointed out that operations and activities in Mexican airspace would not have any effect like national and international routes because the respective itineraries were recorded for the first time last year.
