FAA raises safety rating for Mexico

US Federal Aviation Administration raised (01-Dec-2010) Mexico's safety rating from a Category 2 safety rating the country received in Jul-2010 to Category 1. The FAA stated Mexico complies with international safety standards set by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO), based on the results of a Nov-2010 FAA review of Mexico’s civil aviation authority. With the International Aviation Safety Assessment (IASA) Category 2 rating, Mexican air carriers could not establish new service to the US, but were allowed to maintain existing service. Now with the Category 1 rating, Mexican carriers can again add flights and service to the US. [more]
