Mexico grounds airlines for non-payment

Aero California and ExpressJet have found themselves in trouble with the Mexican government for failing to pay bills relating to the use of Mexican airspace.

Mexico’s communications and transport ministry publicly named and shamed the two carriers during a press conference yesterday, which announced that both airlines had been suspended from Mexican airspace pending receipt of their unpaid bills.

The SCT says Aero California – which was temporarily grounded in 2006 for safety reasons – owes almost Ps260 million ($26 million), while the USA’s ExpressJet has found itself in debt to the tune of almost Ps45 million.

That’s one way of getting your bills paid!
