MMUN Approach ATC Issues

I was flying into MMUN from KLAX this evening. After tuning into the airport’s ATIS frequency, I contacted Approach, checked in, requested a runway, and received my instructions. I did as told, and once I was on final for my assigned Runway 12R, I was told to contact the tower. I did so, and they cleared me to land. About 30 seconds later, I was told to go around since there were too many aircraft and the spacing wasn’t correct. I went around and then contacted approach again. They gave me altitude and heading instructions, which I followed, and then they cleared me for approach on the same Runway 12R. As I was on final, I noticed a Boeing 757 right behind me that was landing on the same runway. The Approach controller then told me that I was aligned with the wrong runway, so I turned towards the direction of 12L (after checking for aircraft in the surrounding area). They told me to contact the Tower again, and I did so. This time, I landed safely, but while I was tuned into the Tower frequency, I heard at least 10 aircraft being told to go around due to the same issue. Also, I heard the Approach controller tell multiple aircraft that they were aligned with the wrong runway, even though they were positioned towards the one that they had been assigned. I have attached screenshots attached that depict this issue. Just wanted to make this clear since I am sure that many other people are concerned about what happened.

Hello! Your best bet here is to contact the ATC who was controlling then for further information. They’re the only ones who will be able to give you 100% an idea of what was going on. Do you know their username?


@Aaron.C was the approach controller and @Mr.Davi was the tower controller. As Tom says your best bet is to PM them for further information 🙂


Please contact controllers via PM
