Flight Delays Possible Starting Sunday

Major Airports May See Delays

Airline passengers should expect possible flight delays starting Sunday, April 21st, 2013 due to the Department of Transportation’s need to cut $637 million from the FAA’s $16 billion dollar budget. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) plans to cut air traffic control tower staffing by 10 percent at major hubs across the country because of these mandatory budget reductions.

Depending on the time of day, weather conditions, runway configuration, and single or multiple control towers in use, passenger flights could be delayed anywhere from 10 minutes to 3 hours according to a study made by the FAA on March 29th at several major airports.
