Featured Map: AVIACSA Restart (30 March 2011)

Méxican low-cost airline AVIASCA, grounded since mid-2009, announced a fare sale on Monday to mark its return to service on 2 May with service from México City to six destinations: Cancún, Monterrey, Oaxaca, Tuxtla Gutiérrez, Tapachula, and Villahermosa. On 6 June the airline plans to add service to Guadalajara and Mérida plus a Monterrey to Cancún route. AVIACSA's fleet consists of Boeing 737-200s (two active plus 19 stored) and Boeing 737-300s (three stored) according to Planespotters.net.

The airline had been grounded by the Méxican government since 6 July 2009 over claims that the airline owed over 292 million pesos in airspace fees. The Méxican government had grounded the airline the previous month due to alleged maintenance irregularities, though the FAA had found the airline to be safe.
