Aviacsa was a Mexican airline. It started operations in 1990.[1] Aviacsa was a low-cost carrier based in Mexico City.[1] In 2009 the Mexican government refused to allow Aviacsa to fly because of safety concerns.[2] Aviacsa appealed the decision in court. Meanwhile, the FAA removed Aviacia's airworthiness certificate in the United States until it could resolve the safety issues in Mexico.[3] Aviacsa ceased operations in July 2009.[4] It was sold to the Madero Group in 2010.[5] In 2011, Aviacsa was going to start flying again. However, it didn't happen because the airline owed a lot of money to the Mexican Government.[6] Aviacsa stopped all operations for good on May 4, 2011.[7] Interjet took over many of Aviacsa's old routes.[8]
