Bush orders moves to reduce air traffic congestion

Ahead of the holiday travel crunch, President George Bush ordered steps Thursday to reduce air traffic congestion and long delays that have left passengers stranded, AP reported. The Department of Defense and the Federal Aviation Administration would work to open unused military airspace to commercial flights. Officials said that would help reduce delays caused by weather and holiday congestion. The FAA also will ensure that air traffic facilities are well-staffed to handle expected increases in flights.
