Though flyers are now facing long delays at major airports after the FAA cut air traffic control tower staffing by 10 percent in response to sequestration budget cuts, Santa Barbara Municipal Airport passengers haven’t been held up so far. “We are in a wait-and-see situation,” said airport director Karen Ramsdell in a statement. “We don’t foresee delays out of SBA at the present time, but due to the fact our non-stop flights to San Francisco, Denver, Seattle, Phoenix, and Los Angeles are major hubs, passengers should be aware if they are traveling farther than those non-stop destination, their travel plans could be affected.”
