U.S. Travel Association Executive Vice President Jonathan Grella issued the following statement today:

“This morning’s reports of air traffic control delays are the strongest indication yet that the shutdown runs the risk of sending immediate shockwaves throughout the American economy. More than 50 percent of all flight delays and cancellations nationwide originate in the New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania airspace. Delays in these regions are likely to have a ripple effect on travelers across the country, and impact the economy and jobs in every corner of the U.S.”
