LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -
There have been no notifications as of yet as to how sequestration cuts will affect Chennault, according to Chennault director Randy Robb.
Cuts to air traffic control centers at Chennault International and the Lake Charles Regional Airport are possible due to the federal sequestration.
The airport sites are on a long list of locations around the nation that could be impacted.
"If we're backed into a corner and told contract tower operations will be cut, what we'll probably do is maintain the tower at our expense," Robb said.
Robb said that would mean fewer hours of operation, probably from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. as opposed to the current 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Robb said that the topic of how sequestration may affect operations will be taken up at Thursday's committee meeting. KPLC will be covering that event.
Overall, six Louisiana air traffic control sites could see their hours cut back or closed.
In February, Heath Allen, executive director of the Lake Charles Regional Airport, said officials there have been concerned about the sequestration cuts for some time.
"However, the focus of these cuts are just now coming to light. The announcement of cuts to air traffic control and specifically the tower at our airport are very concerning. The potential closing of these towers would undoubtedly have far-reaching negative impacts to our nation's economy," Allen said.
