BGM Airport Chief Pleased Delay Issue Resolved

Broome County aviation commissioner Carl Beardsley says he’s glad Congress acted to address flight delays linked to air traffic controller furloughs.

Speaking on WNBF Radio’s Binghamton Now program, Beardsley said there had been some “short ground delays” at the Greater Binghamton Airport related to issues that occurred at other airports. He said the delays generally were 15 to 30 minutes in length.

Beardsley said local travelers sometimes encountered more serious problems at hub airports where they may have faced delays or cancellations of flights to their destination.

The commissioner said some regular business fliers reported issues at Philadelphia or Washington Dulles airports that made it difficult to reach their final destination in a timely manner.

Congress late last week approved shifting $253 million from other FAA accounts to end the air traffic controller furloughs that were blamed for flight delays throughout the country.
