In anticipation of Hurricane Florence, due to hit the US this week, several airlines have begun to issue waivers and rebooking policies.

JetBlue said affected customers could change or refund their reservation on the ‘manage flights’ page on the airline’s website. Details of the operations and current fee waivers are also available. 

The airline has also capped fares for remaining seats to/from Savannah, Charleston, Charlotte, Raleigh-Durham, and Richmond through Sunday, September 16. 

American Airlines is allowing passengers to rebook without a change fee and is waiving fees for bags for flights departing from certain airports that will be directly impacted by the hurricane. 

Customers can check the status of their flight and reschedule their travel on the airline’s website by retrieving their reservation, or by contacting American Airlines’ reservations. If a customer chooses not to fly to/from an airport covered by the current waiver, the carrier will waive change fees for future travel. Customers can cancel their itinerary and request a refund by visiting the website. 

Delta Airlines have announced that customers who wish to cancel their trip due to flight cancellation or significant delay are entitled to a refund for the unused portion of their ticket. Even if your flight is not cancelled, you may make a one-time change to your ticket without fee if you are scheduled to travel to, from, or through the affected areas on Delta, Delta Connection®, or Delta-coded flights.

Travellers are also encouraged to visit the airlines website or use the Fly Delta mobile app to make changes to their flight and get up-to-date flight status updates.
