Mexican charter carrier Global Air has received authorisation to resume flights, three months after a fatal accident involving one of its Boeing 737-200s in Havana on 18 May.

A Mexico City administrative court ruled on 29 August that the suspension of Global Air's service can be withdrawn, following a technical audit of the airline by Mexican civil aviation authority DGAC on 15 August.

The airline was grounded on 22 May following the accident, which killed more than 110 passengers and crew.

After the accident, former pilots of Global Air claimed the airline had forced them to operate aircraft that had frequent electrical, hydraulic and engine problems.

Mexico’s DGAC criticised Global Air’s management in July after the airline leaked details from the accident investigation, which had reportedly blamed the pilot for the crash, categorising the accident as "human error".

The conclusions of the accident investigation have not yet been made public by Cuba’s civil aviation authority IACC.
