Delta Air Lines said it canceled nonstop flights to the New York area for the day.
United Airlines said it is limiting or suspending operations today and early Tuesday, to and from the following airports:
United said it expects to resume service on Tuesday with selected cancellations, weather permitting.
Atlanta-based Delta said customers whose flight plans may be affected by the hurricane can make one-time changes to their travel schedules through Wednesday without incurring fees.
“Delta encourages customers to consider departing earlier, postponing or rerouting their travel to avoid possible inconvenience from expected flight delays and cancellations,” the airline said in a press release.
Customers booked on Delta-ticketed flights from or through South Carolina today through Wednesday, may rebook for travel with the same origin and destination, the airline said. New flights may occur before or after original travel dates as long as they are ticketed and rescheduled for travel on or before Nov. 4.
Travelers on United-ticketed flights through impacted cities from Sunday through Wednesday may reschedule their itineraries for travel through Nov. 4 with a one-time date or time change, and the airline will waive the change fees.
For flights that are canceled or delayed more than two hours, customers may request refunds to the original form of payment, United said.
