The Federal Aviation Administration announced on Saturday that the agency ended furloughs of air traffic controllers after Congress approved a bill to allow the FAA to shift funding within its budget. Nicholas Calio, president and CEO of Airlines for America, said in a statement: "This measure ensures that air-traffic controllers can return to work, and importantly return efficiency to the national air space." On Sunday, flight delays and cancellations returned to pre-furlough levels, according to FlightStats.
