KOAT Channel 7 reported last night that New Mexico Airlines has again stopped flying and that the FAA is currently investigating maintenance problems that pushed the airline to voluntarily ground its planes Dec. 11.

According to Los Alamos County Public Information Officer Julie Habiger, Airport Manager Dave Ploeger has confirmed that the airlines’ last flight to or from Albuquerque was Monday afternoon. All flights since have been cancelled. The county was not notified of the interruption.

“We have not talked to the officials at the airlines at this time. We are not in contact with the FAA nor would they talk to us about what the possible maintenance issues might be,” Habiger said,

Habiger confirmed that the county is addressing the issue and hopes to issue a statement about the situation soon.
