Hurricane Ian has its eye set on Florida — a state which already issues multiple hurricane watches. Accordingly, Delta Air Lines issued a weather waiver for more than a dozen airports in The Sunshine State.
The waiver is currently in effect for Delta travel occurring through Friday, September 30. Affected airports include:
- Daytona Beach, FL (DAB)
- Fort Lauderdale, FL (FLL)
- Fort Myers, FL (RSW)
- Fort Walton Beach, FL (VPS)
- Gainesville, FL (GNV)
- Jacksonville, FL (JAX)
- Key West, FL (EYW)
- Melbourne, FL (MLB)
- Miami, FL (MIA)
- Orlando, FL (MCO)
- Panama City, FL (ECP)
- Sarasota, FL (SRQ)
- Tallahassee, FL (TLH)
- Tampa, FL (TPA)
- West Palm Beach, FL (PBI)
Delta will waive any applicable fare difference (within the same cabin originally booked) for those folks whose travel takes them rebooked travel must take place Otcober 3 or sooner.
The airline permanently waived change fees for most domestic tickets long ago. If your ticket somehow doesn’t qualify for free changes, this could give you a little extra protection.
If you’re really concerned, you might want to start making flight changes now before the ticketing lines (phone and in-person) get extra, extra, extra busy.
Remember that airlines generally don’t pay for any expenses (hotels, meals, ground transport, etc.) if you’re delayed due to weather. I hope you booked with a credit card offering good trip delay coverage or you hold travel insurance. (Or both!)
