What the FAA’s Partial Shutdown Means for Travelers

On Friday, Congress left for the week without reauthorizing the Federal Aviation Administration's budget, resulting in a partial shutdown. However, this will have little impact for travelers. The current funding was set to expire Friday night.

What this means for travelers:
  • Airline ticket taxes will not be collected
  • Although some FAA employees will go on furlough, this partial shutdown does not affect air traffic controllers
  • Airport construction projects will be halted
