Grounded Mexican carrier Avolar has obtained an order from a Tijuana regional court, where the carrier is based, temporarily suspending the Mexican transport department ruling to ground the airline over unpaid ATC fees.

Mexico grounded budget carrier Avolar on 5 August over unpaid ATC fees. But according to Avolar, the regional court ruling requires the transport department to notify the Mexican ATC services provider Seneam to allow the airline's continued flight operations.

Nobody could be reached at the Mexican transport department to clarify the jurisdiction of the regional court over its decision, and if it effectively means that Avolar can resume its flights.

The transport department had already recently admitted that another carrier, Aviacsa, would have been grounded if it hadn't obtained a last minute decision from a Monterry regional court which prevented the immediate execution of a grounding order.
