MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport is not seeing the passenger delays some other airports are experiencing as a result of federal budget cuts.
Spokesman Patrick Hogan says so far, the airport is not seeing any significant impact from the cuts.
Air travelers had to deal with flight delays all along the East Coast Monday as thousands of air traffic controllers were forced to take an unpaid day off because of federal budget cuts.
Some flights into New York, Baltimore and Washington were delayed by more than two hours as the Federal Aviation Administration kept planes on the ground because there weren't enough controllers.
The furloughs are part of mandatory budget cuts that kicked in March 1 after Democrats and Republicans missed a deadline to agree on a long-term deficit reduction plan.
