El Paso International Airport Passes Rigorous FAA Safety Inspection

El Paso International Airport (EPIA) Passes Annual Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Airport Certification Inspection with zero discrepancies.

“It is through the hard work and dedication of Airport and ARFF staff year-round that El Paso International Airport is able to provide a first-class, safe and secure facility for airlines and the passengers they serve,” said Monica Lombraña, Director of Aviation, “I am truly proud of what staff has accomplished.”

Every year, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) conducts a three-day comprehensive review and rigorous inspection of all commercial airports nationwide to ensure that airports are following national safety standards; successful certification is required for an airport to continue commercial operations.

El Paso International Airport (EPIA) completed its FAA Part 139-Certification and Operations Inspection with zero discrepancies, confirming that EPIA is a safe, efficient and well-run airport.

Included in the FAA Part 139 Inspection is a review of:

·        Airport Emergency Plan (AEP)

·        Airport personnel operations and procedures, including self-inspection and maintenance logs

·        Fixed Base Operators (FBO) aircraft fueling procedures and fuel truck safety

·        Evaluation of all airfield markings, lighting and signage

·        Construction Safety

The FAA inspection was led by EPIA Operations and ARFF Divisions.
