The audit that the Federal Aviation Administration of the United States (FAA, for its acronym in English) was carrying out on the security of Mexican aviation has concluded this Friday, the Mexican government reported, without a decision on whether the precious category 1 will return to Mexico.

The Secretariat of Communications of Mexico reported that seven FAA inspectors were in the country this week in meetings with Mexican officials working on the audit.

“It will now be up to the FAA to issue officially in the following weeks a final report of the results of that auditTherefore, the Mexican authorities are awaiting the aforementioned report,” the secretariat said in a statement.

Two Mexican government sources indicated that the United States now has between 30 and 65 days to inform its decision.

Earlier, the newspaper The financial He reported that Mexico had recovered the prized categorybut one of the sources said that “it was a mistake” and had not happened yet.

In response to a request for comment from Reutersthe US air authority said they continue to provide assistance to Mexico’s civil aviation authority, but did not confirm whether the nation regained status.
