Airlines are canceling thousands of flights ahead of Hurricane Nicole.
Data from flight tracking site FlightAware shows as of 10 p.m. ET, carriers in the US have canceled more than 900 Wednesday flights and another 1,100 flights on Thursday.
Orlando International Airport tops cancelations nationwide. The airport ceased commercial operations Wednesday afternoon. Images tweeted from the airport’s verified account show jet bridges tied down and ticket counters covered in plastic.
American, Delta, Southwest, and United Airlines have all issued travel waivers allowing impacted passengers to rebook their flights free of charge.
Southwest Airlines, which operates heavily in Florida, “has trimmed operations at a number of airports we serve in Florida,” including stopping flights into and out of Palm Beach.
“As of now, we plan to resume operations, as weather and infrastructure permit, at those airports tomorrow,” Southwest said in a Wednesday statement.
