The committee of air traffic controllers announced it would stop working from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. Wednesday to draw attention to its demand for increased salaries, an airport source told The Daily Star on Tuesday.With 20 air traffic controllers and 18 assistant controllers currently on the team, staff numbers fall short of LebATCA's suggested minimum of 75 officers, or the ideal team size of 105 .However, despite the need for more employees and training, LebATCA is now rethinking the demands, after the 2018 state budget endorsed last month slashed ministries' budgets by 20 percent.
