During the meeting, they highlighted the importance of air connectivity for tourism, with 34.4 million seats scheduled to be flown to Mexico by 2024.

The Federal Civil Aviation Agency (AFAC) and the Mexican Airspace Navigation Services (SENEAM) have successfully completed a verification program for radio aids throughout Mexico. Over the past two months, 95% of the existing radio aids in the country have been reviewed and calibrated, surpassing international operating margins. This achievement required an unprecedented amount of work, but was necessary to ensure air safety. The efforts of SENEAM engineers, who maintained the navigation systems within operating standards, were presented to the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) as evidence of compliance with international regulations. 

SENEAM also used advanced technology to keep the navigation systems permanently calibrated. Throughout the verification program, the AFAC conducted numerous aerial verifications with the support of SENEAM engineers to ensure that air navigation equipment was functioning properly. Overall, this program has been successful in aligning Mexico’s radio aids with international standards and improving air safety in the country.

According to Fernando Vásquez, sales manager for the executive sector of Honeywell’s Avionics systems for Central America and Mexico, Mexico is among the countries with the best air safety. Vásquez explains that air safety regulations are established by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) to ensure balance worldwide. While each region and country has its own aeronautical regulations, they are based on ICAO standards and must evolve alongside technological advancements. Vásquez emphasizes the importance of various components on board aircraft for ensuring safety, such as navigation systems, communications systems, and air surveillance.

 Honeywell designs equipment that adheres to established safety standards and also has the ability to enhance capabilities and improve air safety. Vásquez highlights Honeywell’s invention and improvement of the Ground Proximity Warning System (GPWS), which protects aircraft from ground impacts and enables safer approaches. Honeywell also updates onboard computers with hardware and software equivalent to the regulations of different countries.

President Andrés Manuel López Obrador announced that the Felipe Ángeles International Airport (AIFA) will no longer receive subsidies once it reaches its break-even point and starts making profits. He highlighted that AIFA has the highest cargo movement in the country, which would enable it to generate income in a short period of time. When questioned about subsidies for AIFA, the President stated that they will not be granted for the airport’s operations, emphasizing that the airport will primarily serve the transportation of merchandise for airlines. 

The general manager of AIFA, Isidoro Pastor, predicted that the break-even point would be reached in the first quarter of 2024, earlier than the Master Development Plan’s estimation of March 2027. Financial information of the Santa Lucia airport showed that AIFA had a profit of 77.9 million pesos in the first quarter of the year, with income primarily coming from the Airport Use Fee (TUA) and total expenses for the operation of the terminal amounting to 412 million pesos (mxn).
