We received many questions about the possible consequences of the sequestration due to a lack of decision-making in Congress. Visitors of our web site wonder whether it will affect their air travel.
The sequestration would shrink the federal budget by $85 billion (€65 billion) through September. 30, 2013. As a result, the US Department of Transportation (DOT) faces a budget cut of $1 billion (€770 million) of which $600 million (€460 million) will hit the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
