The Mexico Regional Office was established in Mexico City on 15 February 1957. In September 1996, the Office moved to its present location. Its location has changed, as follows:
Av. Chapultepec 540, Colonia Juarez, Mexico
Av. Presidente Masaryk No. 29, 3rd Floor,
Col. Chapultepec Morales, C.P. 11570, Mexico
as the operational and technical problems inherent in different parts of the world varied considerably, it was logical that the planning and implementation of the required ground services should be carried out on an area or regional basis - the geographical limits of which should be such as to encompass air route stages having a certain degree of homogeneity, and therefore entailing a somewhat uniform set of requirements; and
planning the requirements for air navigation facilities and services is done through consultation among a limited number of States, rather than in preference to planning on a world-wide basis. These consultations are carried out on an area basis and normally through regional air navigation meetings. The need to conduct the planning of the facilities and services required for the world-wide network of international air routes in a small number of areas of manageable proportions is evident.
• operational and technical problems varied
• planning preferable at regional level
• consultations done at regional air navigation meetings
• planning impractical on a worldwide basis.
