Because of Hurricane Michael, airlines are likely to cancel many flights in the direct path of the storm and the surrounding areas. Flights that are not canceled may be delayed. Once Hurricane Michael makes ground fall, airports may be listed as “open” but flooding on local roadways may limit access to airports for passengers, as well as the employees who work for the airlines or at the airport. As a result, every aspect of your trip to the airport, including parking, checking in, getting through security and boarding may take longer than usual.
As always, check with airlines about the status of your flight before you leave for the airport. Major carriers provide flight status updates on their website:
- Southwest Airlines
- Delta Airlines
- United Airlines
- American Airlines
Please continue to check the status of your flight with your airline, not the Airport. You can also check the status of some major airports in the storm path by visiting Fly.FAA.gov, which is updated regularly. You can also check current travel advisories provided by most U.S. airlines.
