Hurricane Florence impacting flights at Bradley

Weather News

Almost 1,000 flights have been canceled across the country as parts of the southeastern United States prepare for the wrath of Hurricane Florence. 

At Bradley International Airport, Thursday’s Spirit Airlines flights going to and arriving from Myrtle Beach were canceled. 

Some flights had to be rerouted to avoid the storm – like Seleta Duvalier’s flight into Atlanta. 

“I was supposed to get a connecting flight but the storm is kind of bad,” said Duvalier. “And I don’t want to be there when it’s all kind of a mess.”

The airlines are warning people to get to the airport early to check in because as the storm gets closer, more flights may be rerouted. Travelers also told 22News they are noticing longer than usual lines at the airport. 

“We have only a 50-minute layover in Chicago, so if it’s like that there, it may be risky,” said Arny Humble of Somers. 

If you do have plans to fly over the next few days, the airlines said to check your flight status before you go to the airport.
