(Atlanta, GA)  — If you’re taking a flight out of Hartsfield-Jackson, then get ready for some long delays.

Starting yesterday, the FAA is being forced to furlough some air traffic controllers.

It’s part of Congress’ inability to stop the country from going over the fiscal cliff.

Wait times for some planes could reach up to three hours.

More than 15,000 air traffic controllers are among the employees of the Federal Aviation Administration that must reduce their work hours.

The FAA had to cut more than $630 million dollars from its budget, and officials say they had no choice but to hand down the furloughs.
