WINDSOR LOCKS, Conn. (WWLP) - As the government shutdown continues on, it's beginning to impact travel at airports.
The government shutdown has been causing some delays at security lines.
Spokesperson for Bradley International Airport Alisa Sisic said,"TSA screening wait times at Bradley Airport have not increased due to the partial government shutdown."
This is because TSA agents are among the government employees that are being asked to work without pay during the shutdown.
Many TSA employees are calling out sick for their shifts, leaving some major airports understaffed.
Unions representing air traffic controllers and pilots from various airlines have urged the government to find a resolution to the partial shutdown, but there is still no end in sight.
Airlines and the TSA are asking fliers to arrive at the airport two hours in advance.
