The Federal Aviation Administration of the USA confirms the high level of flight safety in the Republic of Azerbaijan

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) of the USA confirmed «Category 1" of the Republic of Azerbaijan’s safety oversight. The level was first assigned in 2014 based on the evaluation of the country’s civil aviation flight safety, allowing for Azerbaijani air carriers to launch direct scheduled operations to the United States. After assessments held in 2017 and 2018 for compliance with the requirements of the international standards set by the Chicago Convention, Azerbaijan continues to maintain the highest "Category 1".

Reaffirmation of "Category 1" by the FAA of the US was a result of a close attention paid by the leadership of the Republic of Azerbaijan to ensuring flight safety and further development of the Azerbaijani civil aviation.
