FAA to keep 72 air traffic facilities open at night

WASHINGTON — Seventy-two airport towers and other air traffic control facilities that were slated to close at night due to budget cuts will get to stay open, the Federal Aviation Administration said Wednesday.

The FAA had announced earlier this year that it would eliminate midnight shifts of air traffic controllers at 69 airport towers, two regional approach control facilities, and one combination tower and approach control facility in order to meet across-the-board, automatic spending cuts required by Congress.
