ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A small airline that serves several New Mexico communities and recently grounded its planes is working to get back up and running.

KOAT-TV reports (https://goo.gl/mn3wzb) that New Mexico Airlines has at least one operating airplane a week after it voluntarily grounded its fleet to address mechanical issues.

FAA spokesman Lynn Lunsford won’t say what mechanical issues New Mexico Airlines is fixing. However, he confirmed that the Federal Aviation Administration is investigating the small airlines in connection with the maintenance problems.

New Mexico Airlines is based in Albuquerque and also serves Los Alamos in northern New Mexico and Carlsbad in southeastern New Mexico.

New Mexico Airlines CEO Greg Kahlstorf says he expects all planes to be back in the air eventually.
