US: Six airports to remain closed through Friday

Fayetteville, N.C., (FAY), Jacksonville, N.C., (OAJ) , Myrtle Beach, S.C., (MYR), New Bern, N.C., (EWN) and Wilmington, N.C., (ILM) will remain closed for air travel through the end of Friday as Hurricane Florence continues to impact coastal and inland airports.

Charleston, S.C., (CHS) will remain closed until Friday just after 6 p.m. ET. Pending a facility, infrastructure and airport staffing assessment, Delta expects to operate flight 1971 from Atlanta Friday evening. The airline is planning a Saturday restart at many of the closed airports following similar assessments to ensure flights can safety operate.

As flights begin to resume, Delta will dispatch a cadre of over 30 employees from other unaffected airports to Charleston and other hurricane-impacted airports to provide assistance restarting flight operations. Even as Florence’s worst effects diminish, Delta will be keeping a close eye on flooding and damages to city and airport infrastructure that may pose additional challenges to resuming flights. The airline will continue to send supplies such as non-perishable food and water where needed and is also warning airports to the west of the coastal Carolina region to stay alert as conditions and forecast predictions may change.
