The Airports and Auxiliary Services Network (ASA) renovated its Civil Aerodrome Certificate to ensure its airports comply with international standards regarding security and operations. 

ASA renovated its Civil Aerodrome Certificate for the Campeche International Airport, Ciudad Obregón International Airport, Nuevo Laredo International Airport and Colima National Airport to comply with the standards and practices recommended by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). The certificate guarantees that the terminals adhere to international safety and operations standards. The Ministry of Infrastructure, Communications and Transport (SICT) highlighted that the terminals’ operations are of international quality.

ASA explained that the Civil Aerodrome Certificate also complies with the standards and methods implemented by the Federal Civil Aviation Agency (AFAC). The four terminals met international requirements in their physical and operational characteristics, including: generalities, data on the aerodrome, physical characteristics, restriction and elimination of obstacles, visual aids for navigation, visual aids indicating obstacles, visual aids indicating areas of restricted use, electrical systems, services, facilities and aerodrome maintenance.

According to AFAC’s Airports, Aerodromes and Heliports Mandatory Circulars, to obtain the Public Service Civil Aerodrome Certificate airports must undergo a certification process that complies with Annex 14 to the Convention on International Civil Aviation.

The certification seeks to strengthen the sector and evaluates operations following international standards. ASA currently holds a certification for 13 out of its 19 airports, which lasts for three years, and is currently certifying the others. 

Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacífico (GAP) explained via a press release that, “aerodrome certification has the objective of verifying that the airport guarantees the security of the infrastructure, systems, services, procedures and that the personnel have the technical capacity for the correct management of operations.”
