FAA employee furloughs, including air traffic controller furloughs, began Sunday. The FAA will be working with the airlines and using a comprehensive set of air traffic management tools to minimize the delay impacts of lower staffing as we move into the busy summer travel season.
Some of those tools, such as ground stops and ground delay programs, will be able to be tracked on www.fly.faa.gov
. Delays may also result from other traffic management initiatives, such as increasing spacing between planes.
