Bradley is only Connecticut airport that uses FAA controllers
The only airport in Connecticut that uses Federal Aviation Administration air traffic controllers is Bradley International Airport. Budget cuts that have resulted in furloughs of FAA controllers is a separate issue from the cuts that are closing the contract-operated towers at Tweed New Haven Regional Airport and five other smaller airports in the state. The initial version of a story posted Monday confused the two.
Tweed, not city, considers lawsuit over tower closure
The Tweed New Haven Airport Authority, not the city of
New Haven, is considering joining a lawsuit against the Federal Aviation
Administration over the proposed June15 closure of the control towers
at Tweed New Haven Regional Airport and 149 others across the country. A story this week incorrectly stated the city's position.
