WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Leaders at Wilmington International Airport are keeping a close watch on the possible budget sequestration, which could lead to millions of dollars in cuts to the Federal Aviation Administration.
To prepare for the possibility of sequestration on Friday, March 1, the FAA is making plans to reduce its spending by around $600 million.
This means some air traffic controllers and other airport workers could be furloughed.
Airport Director Jon Rosborough said he's been in touch with federal agencies, however, it's too soon to tell what kind of impact this could have on ILM.
He said even if the cuts start Friday, it could take a while for changes to go into place and the impact likely won't be felt by the airport or passengers right away.
