The sequester-forced budget cuts could impact air travel, including at Akron-Canton Airport.
But airport spokesperson Kristi Van Auken says it's business as usual at CAK right now.
"There's no impact at this point on the airport or our operations," Van Auken tells AkronNewsNow.com. "So, the sequester essentially just means that these budget cuts are now under consideration."
Van Auken says that the Akron-Canton Airport control tower is on a list of possible late night closures - from midnight until 6 AM.
She says that could affect late night and early morning flights, but the airport is working with the FAA and local congressional leaders to try to prevent that from happening.
Van Auken says there could be scattered TSA checkpoint furloughs, though there's no idea how that'll affect the local airport.
"There could be some furloughs, some selective furloughs of TSA employees at certain shifts or maybe certain days of the week," Van Auken explains, "but we don't yet know how that'll impact us."
Van Auken says the airport will work with the TSA and the FAA to ensure a smooth, safe flow at the airport.
"Although we have some concern about it, we're working through the process with our partners," Van Auken tells AkronNewsNow.com, "and we feel confident that no matter what happens, we're committed to that low-fare, that relaxing airport experience."
