Last Update: May 19, 2022 / 22:28:06 GMT/Zulu time
A Volaris Costa Rica Airbus A320-200N, registration N545VL performing flight Q6-4069 from Mexico City (Mexico) to Guatemala City (Guatemala), had been cleared to line up runway 05L some time earlier and was moving onto the runway, when some other crew on radio transmitted a warning about the developing conflict prompting the crew of Y4-799 to initiate a go around from low height (about 100 feet AGL).
Q6-4069 departed about 3 minutes later, Y4-799 positioned for another approach to runway 05R and landed safely.
Mexico's Ministry of Traffic reported they do not have a report about the occurrence.
On May 19th 2022 Mexico's AIB reported XA-VRV was cleared to land but needed to go around because the runway was occupied by N545VL. The occurrence was rated a serious incident and is being investigated.
