NEWARK - The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) says its operations are getting back to normal after Congress passed an emergency bill that plugs up the cut in its funding.

Delays and cancellations plagued air travelers flying in and out of New Jersey all week after FAA furloughs kicked in, along with other sweeping budget cuts tied into the federal sequester.

At Newark Liberty International Airport today, arrivals and departures were on or close to schedule. Passengers say it's a welcome change from the headaches and delays at the airport earlier this week, when air traffic control workers were furloughed.

However, some travelers worry that delays could become a reoccurring problem due to the frequency of budgetary stalemates in Washington.
