Orlando International Airport will remain open on Monday, according to a statement of officials.
As the forecast for Hurricane Dorian shifted further off Florida’s east coast, Orlando International Airport will continue with operations on Monday, despite a previous tweet saying it would cease flights at 2 a.m. Monday on September 2.
The Orlando International Airport announced on Saturday night that flight operations will continue on Monday. Airport officials say Dorian’s changing track is the reason behind the decision of lifting its previous planned closure and they will keep an eye on the storm.
As the forecast for Hurricane Dorian shifted further off Florida’s east coast, the airport said in a statement “Orlando International Airport will continue normal operations on Monday.” They explained that the previous decision to cease flights had been made after “careful consideration and out of an abundance of caution” for the safety and security of the traveling public and employees at the airport.
The airport’s Emergency Operations Center will continue to closely monitor the storm and determine if whether any closures are necessary at a later time, reminded from the airport.
Passengers should contact their airline directly to find out about flight information.
