Luis Miguel De Alva-Morales

Luis Miguel de Alva, a senior associate in Baker McKenzie’s Mexico City office and member of the International Commercial practice group, has been with the Firm since 2011. He regularly works with transportation industry clients on transactional, public policy and regulatory matters, including with the Mexican Civil Aviation Authority (AFAC).

The Civil Aviation Law Regulations were amended in response to Mexico’s downgrade to Category 2 by the United States Federal Aviation Agency. These reforms propose measures to improve the safety of Mexican aviation and seek to correct the lack of compliance determined by the Federal Civil Aviation Agency with the safety standards imposed by the Convention on International Civil Aviation of the International Civil Aviation Organization. In addition, the reform incorporated provisions related to the operation of Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems, better known as drones.
