El Paso Airport Receives Perfect Score for Safety from FAA

El Paso International Airport (EPIA) passes a rigorous Annual Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Airport Certification Inspection with Zero Discrepancies.

“Passing the inspection with no discrepancies requires a focus on safety and careful coordination of Airport Operations, Airport Field Maintenance, and ARFF staff year-round,” said Monica Lombraña, Managing Director of Aviation and International Bridges.

“We are very fortunate to have such dedicated, talented and hard-working individuals working for the Airport,” Lombraña added

Every year, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) conducts a three-day comprehensive review and thorough inspection of all commercial airports nationwide to ensure that airports are following national safety standards.

Successful Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR) Part 139 certification is required for an airport to continue commercial operations.

Included in the annual inspection is a review of:

  • The Airport’s Emergency Plan
  • Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighting (ARFF) equipment, training, and response times
  • Airport personnel operations and procedures, including self-inspection and maintenance logs
  • Fixed Base Operators aircraft fueling procedures and fuel truck safety
  • Evaluation of all airfield markings, lighting and signage
  • Construction Safety
