Waiting times at airport security are continuing to get longer in large cities, because of shortages in TSA workers as the government shutdown goes on.
Smaller airports, such as La Crosse, however, haven’t seen those problems.
Jason Gillett, the deputy director at LSE, credits the ‘amazing people’ working at La Crosse with helping the local airport avoid delays.
Gillett says he’s watching how the shutdown affects larger airports, to see how long the TSA can maintain its local staff levels.
La Crosse offers daily direct service to Minneapolis, Chicago and, starting in March, Detroit.
