Hurricane Florence scuttles flights between DIA and airports in Carolinas

Southwest, Frontier and United airlines have cancelled 16 passenger flights between Denver International Airport and two Carolina airports directly impacted by Hurricane Florence on Thursday and Friday, according to scheduling notices.

Hurricane Florence is scheduled to make landfall Friday, according to National Weather Service projections.

“We always advise that people check with their airlines before coming to the airport,” said Emily Williams, DIA spokeswoman.

People with travel plans connecting to airports in the Carolinas should also check to see if airlines are offering waivers or offers to change their flights, Williams said.

United, Frontier and Southwest airlines cancelled 14 incoming and outgoing flights between DIA and Raleigh-Durham International Airport on Thursday and Friday.

A total of 419 airline flights into and out of the Carolinas from across the country have been cancelled in anticipation of Florence.

Most of the cancellations – a total of 147 – were linked to Raleigh-Durham incoming and outgoing flights.
