Was Grounded In April Over Safety Concerns
After it was grounded back in April for safety reasons, Mexican
airline Aero California is back in the air with five of its 28
planes... but there's no word yet on when it will actually resume
The carrier was suspended April 2 after a two-week long review
by Mexican transportation officials... who found Aero California
mechanics were cannabilizing decommissioned planes to keep others
Company executives say there was never a safety problem... but
those same transportation officials disagreed.
The Associated Press reports even Mexican President Vicente Fox
got into the act... asking his Transportation Department to hurry
their review of the situation so Aerocalifornia could get back into
the air again.
The Transportation Department did so... but they added that
aviation authorities were closely watching the airline "to ensure
that the carrier meets all established safety measures."
Prior to being grounded, Aero California operated a fleet of
DC-9s on routes between 22 Mexican cities, and Los Angeles.
