New Mexico Airlines, which flies to Los Alamos Airport and the Albuquerque Sunport, is currently grounding its flights around the state.
FAA spokesman Lynn Lunsford told KOAT-TV that New Mexico Airlines recently decided to ground its planes because of mechanical issues. The airline primarily flies smaller aircraft that seat up to nine passengers.
Airline officials did not immediately return a call for comment Friday morning, but a reservation center agent told the Associated Press that flights are canceled until further notice.
Los Alamos County issued a statement this morning, saying it had contacted New Mexico Airlines. Philo Shelton, the county's public works director, said New Mexico Airlines is hoping to have the problem resolved by the end of the week.
The county subsidizes flights by New Mexico Airlines out of Los Alamos Airport. The contract with the airport runs through June 2015.
