DALLAS (AP) – Federal officials say air traffic control centers at 25 smaller Texas airports could close or see hours reduced if automatic federal spending cuts take effect next week.

Officials on Friday said travelers should expect delays when the cutbacks begin in April.

The Federal Aviation Administration says the reductions are part of its planning to cope with a spending reduction of $600 million during the rest of the fiscal year, which runs through Sept. 30.

The largest airports, such as Dallas Fort-Worth International Airport and Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport, are not on FAA’s list of potential closures or cutbacks, which mostly affect airports with fewer than 10,000 commercial flights a year.
