MEXICO CITY - The pilot of a plane belonging to Mexico's Aeromexico was forced to suddenly abort a landing in Mexico City on Wednesday night due to another plane blocking it on the same runway, the airline said on Thursday.
The latest near-miss has put a spotlight on operations at Mexico City's saturated international airport, one of the busiest in Latin America, just as the capital city's newly-built second airport gears up after a March inauguration.

In a post on Twitter, Aeromexico stressed that its pilot was forced to take immediate action because the plane that landed just before 'took a long time to vacate the runway.'
The airline added the action was in compliance with national and international safety protocols.
Mexico's airspace has recently been hit by a string of worrying incidents that have fed concerns about safety, as dozens of flights are being moved to the newly build hub.
