NYC Airport Halts Flights Due To ATC Worker Shortage From Government Shutdown

All flights  into LaGuardia are halted due to the government shutdown.

The Street reports:

“The Federal Aviation Administration said it is temporarily halting flights into New York’s LaGuardia airport due to air traffic control staffing issues as a government shutdown extends into its second month.

The FAA is halting flights due to a shortage of workers at an air traffic control center in Washington. Flights at Washington’s Reagan National, Newark’s Liberty International and Philadelphia’s International airport were also delayed on Friday.

Flights into LaGuardia are being delayed at their point of departure, and the FAA is advising travelers to New York to check with their departure airport. Departures from Newark and Philadelphia are experiencing taxi delays of greater than 45 minutes, while arrivals are ‘experiencing airborne holding delays’ greater than 45 minutes, according to an FAA website.”
