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

JetBlue said in a statement that impacted customers can change or refund their reservation on the manage flights page on the airlines website. Details on the operations and current fee waivers is also available. 

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

American Airlines has implemented the current travel alert which allows customers whose travel plans are impacted by Hurricane Florence to rebook without a change in fees. American is also waiving fees for bags and in-cabin pets for flights departing from certain airports that will be directly impacted by Hurricane Florence. 

Customers can reschedule their travel on the airlines website by retrieving their reservation, or by contacting American reservations. If a customer chooses not to fly to/from an airport covered by the current waiver, American will waive change fees for future travel. Customers are able to check the status of their flight on the website. 

The airlines refund policy allows customers to cancel their itinerary and request a refund by visiting its website. Customers who booked through a travel agent should contact their travel agency directly. 

Delta Airlines has added a total of 1,200 seats via extra flights and upsized aircraft in the storm's path. The airline has also expanded its travel waiver to include Asheville, N.C., (AVL), Augusta, Ga., (AGS) and Greenville/Spartanburg S.C., (GSP) in addition to extending the impacted travel dates covered by the waiver through September 17. The airline has also waived baggage and pet-in-cabin fees.
