The deal in Congress to avoid air traffic controller furloughs is good news for Akron-Canton Airport.
Airport spokesperson Kristie Van Auken says that the FAA furloughs haven't had a major effect on the local airport.
But she says there have been some delays - and a couple of cancellations - due to staffing issues at some of CAK's destinations.
"For example, the New York airports experienced some delays, and some congestion and some cancellations," Van Auken tells AkronNewsNow.com, "because of reduced staffing numbers in the aircraft controller towers there."
Van Auken says the airport is glad that a deal will stablize FAA staffing.
"There has been an impact...again, it's been relatively light here, but we're glad to see that there's a resolution now," Van Auken says, "and that the FAA has the flexibility they're going to need to allocate the right kinds of staffing resources to make sure that their airports are fully staffed."
She says anything that affects Akron-Canton Airport customers is of concern to the airport.
