Pitts on Lancaster Tower Remaining Open


Location: Unknown

The Federal Aviation Administration announced this afternoon that contract control towers slated for closure starting April 7 would remain open until June 15. This includes the tower at Lancaster Airport.

Congressman Pitts' statement follows:

"I'm glad that the FAA is taking more time to think about the consequences of closing control towers. Closing towers at busy airports like Lancaster could have public safety consequences.

"After consulting with the House Transportation Committee, I am confident in saying that the FAA should have enough budget flexibility to keep these towers open. I hope the delay allows the FAA to make the right decision."
