March 25, 2019

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A New Mexico utility is finishing up repairs at the Albuquerque International Sunport in the wake of a power outage over the weekend.

Public Service Co. of New Mexico officials say they had to initiate another outage Monday morning to make the repairs but the airport was in full operation by 5 a.m.

According to a tweet from PNM, there were issues with a circuit as well as a backup circuit.

The outage, which lasted for about five hours Saturday morning, caused more than 30 flights to either be delayed or canceled, creating longer wait times for passengers.

The utility says it will meet with city officials about possible improvements for the Sunport.
