Controller Retirements Could Hinder Travel

The FAA has approved 268 air traffic controller spots operating from the Southern California Terminal Radar Approach Center near San Diego. The center, known as TRACON, has filled just 217 of those slots.

"At this time that doesn't pose an issue for us," Tesoro-Fermin said. "But we do look forward to getting more air traffic controllers before the end of the year."
