300+ flights canceled at Charlotte Douglas International Airport  8 Months ago

Source:   USA Today  

Travelers in the Southeast face another day of flight cancellations due to the remnants of Hurricane Michael.

The biggest trouble spot: Charlotte Douglas International Airport in North Carolina, a major hub for American Airlines. More than 300 flights into and out of the busy airport have been canceled, according to flight tracker FlightAware. That compares with about 50 cancellations on Wednesday. The airport averages more than 1,400 arrivals and departures per day.

Most of the affected flights on Thursday are to and from cities in the region, including Myrtle Beach and Charleston, South Carolina, Savannah, Georgia, and Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina, but other cities including Indianapolis are on the list, too.

Airport officials urge passengers to check their flight status.

Four small airports in the Florida Panhandle, which suspended flight operations on Wednesday due to Hurricane Michael, are seeing continued flight cancellations Thursday as they reopen.

At Pensacola International Airport, 13 flights to and from the airport have been canceled, according to FlightAware. That is down from 60 on Wednesday.

Tallahassee International Airport says operations will resume by mid-morning Thursday. The airport is showing nine flight cancellations for Thursday, down from 35 on Wednesday, according to FlightAware.

The Destin-Fort Walton Beach Airport also plans to resume operations by mid-morning Thursday. There are 11 flight cancellations into and out of the airport, down from 44 on Wednesday, according to FlightAware.

Officials there are also urging travelers to check their flight status before heading to the airport.

Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport, in hard-hit Panama City, remains closed to commercial flights for a second day, resulting in 33 flight cancellations.
