Furloughs by the Federal Aviation Administration have been causing delays all across the U.S., but at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport, the delays are rather minor.

While some parts of the country, such as New York and Washington, D.C., have been experiencing delays of more than two hours, the Lambert delays are typically about 17 minutes, a good deal shorter than others nationwide.

The furloughs have come as a part of the FAA’s action to meet federal budget cuts. The furloughs of 47,000 employees, including nearly 13,000 air traffic controllers, are expected to account for $200 million of the FAA’s required $637 million in budget cuts.
