Manhattan Airport Struggles with Federal Spending Cuts


Last week, the Federal Aviation Administration announced that it would cut funding to some regional airports and their air traffic controllers as part of the sequester. Manhattan Regional Airport is on the list. And, there's still no word on whether the city of Manhattan will pay for air traffic controllers itself. Peter Van Kuren is the Manhattan airport director.

Van Kuren says that commercial flights to Dallas-Fort Worth and Chicago are expected to continue out of Manhattan, and that air traffic control services are expected to be obtained out of Kansas City.
