Wilmas wake of disruption

By Administrator |

Major US and international airlines were yesterday hoping to resume flights to Florida and Mexico, after some airports were closed because of Hurricane Wilma. So far the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has given no timetable

for when those airports that were closed might reopen.
American Airlines and Southwest Airlines yesterday said that they were hopeful that flights to Miami, Fort Lauderdale and Fort Myers, Florida, and Cancun, Mexico, will resume today. American said its flights to Cozumel in Mexico are not expected to resume until tomorrow because of main grid and back up power failures at Miami Airport. The roofs of some terminal buildings were also damaged by the hurricane at Miami Airport. JetBlue Airways Corp. (JBLU) cancelled its flights to Florida and Nassau, Bahamas and all airlines are advising passengers planning to travel to affected areas to confirm their flights.
