Government Shutdown Affecting Flights at the Monroe Regional Airport

Friday, January 25, 2019 - 11:45am

Monroe Regional Airport Director Ron Phillips says, “It appears that the federal government shutdown is being felt in Monroe. This morning, three (3) flights at the Monroe Regional Airport were cancelled because TSA agents did not report to work today to man their security checkpoints. Approximately 150-200 passengers were affected so far this morning. As a result, the United Airlines (7:15 am) flight was changed to 8:50 am, the Delta (7:00 am) flight departed at 8:18 am, and American Airlines (5:56 am) flight was cancelled. Currently, all later flights appear to be on schedule. TSA agents from Shreveport and Alexandria came/are coming in to man our Monroe Regional Airport security checkpoint stations.”
