Highly-Publicized Measure Becoming Commonplace Over Holiday
In what has become a US holiday tradition, once again the US
military will make airspace available for commercial airline
flights off the East Coast during the July 4th weekend, to help
reduce travel delays for air travelers.
The airspace released by the military over the upcoming weekend
will allow airlines to plan alternate routes in one of the
country’s most heavily flown aviation corridors, said US
Transportation Secretary Mary E. Peters. The DOD will release
airspace off the east coast from Maine to Florida above 24,000
feet, and will continue to control airspace below 23,000 feet for
"Today’s announcement will help ensure that travelers
don’t have to celebrate Independence Day by being stuck on an
airplane," said Peters.
The Department of Defense (DOD) is releasing airspace off the
eastern seaboard from 0600 EDT on Thursday, July 3, to 0600 Monday,
July 7. This is similar to what was done over
Memorial Day, Christmas and Thanksgiving.
The military continually works with the Federal Aviation
Administration to release the airspace anytime it is not being used
for military missions, the Secretary added.
