So the FAA is pushing forward with tower closures and it looks like Lubbock, Texas may be losing it’s night shift.. The reporter for this story, Adam Young, did some follow-up with UPS and Southwest Airlines about their use of the local airport. Both operators don’t seem overly concerned about the lack of a night shift controller.
What if these tower closings and reduced hours end up having no real affect on operations? Budget cuts well executed I’d say then… wouldn’t you? I’d also like to know where we could save even more money.
