Flights to resume at Miami today after Hurricane Irma

Flights to resume at Miami today after Hurricane Irma

Passenger and cargo flights at Miami International Airport (MIA) will resume on a limited basis today, 12 September as the hurricane finally leaves the Florida shores.

Hurricane Irma pounded the Miami and southern Florida area from Sunday until yesterday and winds reached 135mph.

The gateway announced yesterday there would be no flights, but said some airlines flew personnel and crew members to MIA in preparation for flights to resume and a damage assessment was carried out to assess if services could resume.

MIA says given that many airlines are not operating their full schedule of flights, passengers should contact their airline directly to confirm their flight’s status before coming to the airport.

Miami Executive Airport is open, but the FAA tower is currently closed for damage assessment. Flights are operating with pilot-to-pilot communication.

Miami-Homestead General Aviation Airport and Dade-Collier Training and Transition Airport remain closed.
