Good news! After being closed since Wednesday morning, the Orlando International Airport has announced they will are resuming flights tomorrow, Friday September 29th. The first passenger flights will begin starting at noon. This is a major achievement in getting things back to normal after the destruction of Hurricane Ian.
The below is the full statement released just a few moments ago:
After conferring with the National Weather Service, airlines, and federal partners, it has been decided that Orlando International Airport will resume passenger flights after 12:00pm Friday, (09/30/22). Travelers are advised not to arrive at the airport for their departures prior to 10 a.m., so the airport and partners can prepare working areas to better serve our customers.
This decision was made after a thorough investigation of any property damage and a careful consideration of the safety and security of the traveling public and airport employees. All roads leading into the airport property and parking facilities will reopen Friday morning.
The airport’s Emergency Operations Center (EOC) will continue a 24 hour-a-day monitoring of airport activities and airport leaders will work with industry partners to determine if any further adjustments to airport operations plans are necessary.
Travelers are advised to contact their airlines and rental car companies directly for individual flight and rental car information.
