Aviacsa wins court ruling, starts flights


MEXICO CITY — Mexican airline Aviacsa has resumed flights after winning a court ruling against a government order grounding its fleet over safety concerns.

An Aviacsa statement says it resumed operations Saturday after a judge struck down the government order. The airline denies it has safety problems.

The Mexican government suspended Aviacsa flights Wednesday after officials reported irregularities in the maintenance of 25 planes.

The Transportation Department said in a statement it would appeal the decision. It said Aviacsa had not resolved the safety issues raised by the government, including an insufficient number of staff to inspect aircraft.

The department warned passengers against flying on the airline until the problems are addressed.
