When will Florida's airports reopen?

When will Florida's airports reopen?

Nearby Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, which also closed ahead of Irma, will also keep its doors shut Monday as it assesses damage and makes any necessary repairs.

Although many Southeast airports remain open, a number of flights have been cancelled or delayed as the result of airport closures throughout the region.

It may be close to impossible to get a flight out of Florida with Hurricane Irma breathing down the coastal state's neck, but if you do snag something it likely won't cost an arm and a leg as earlier reports have stated.

Thousands of flights canceled as Irma targets Atlanta
Overall, 3,968 flights had been canceled nationwide, while 8,281 were delayed as of Monday morning, according to FlightAware . The day will give the airport time to get personnel as numerous facility's 4000 workers were affected by the storm.

By early Monday, around 450,000 Georgia Power and EMC customers mostly in coastal and south Georgia were without power after Irma crossed over into the state overnight, bringing high winds and rain. The company put the total at 6,896 as of 6 p.m. ET. It was expected that by late Saturday, all operations would have come to a standstill across all the airports in #Florida. The airlines will always be the best source for information, and passengers should check airline websites and mobile apps for the most up-to-date flight information. "Cargo flights will resume when passenger flights begin". Delta says there are tentative plans to restart service on Tuesday, pending infrastructure assessment. JBLU 3.64% , United Continental Holdings Inc., UAL 3.56% and American Airlines Group Inc., AAL 5.18% also capped their fares to help consumers trying to evacuate from the hurricane's path. Chin said Monday that they will be moved to the Concourse D fourth floor auditorium as the airport prepares to potentially reopen Tuesday. Delta planned to suspend its service there starting Sunday afternoon.

The No. 2 US airline by passenger traffic, whose business is heavily dependent on operations at the Atlanta airport, said it was planning to resume service to airports in Florida.
