Is Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport closing because of Hurricane Irma?

As the powerful storm threatened to rip through the Florida coast by Sunday, airlines ramped up the number of flights available out of south Florida airports, where operations were likely to temporarily cease through the weekend and beyond.

Delta Air Lines has also added 5,000 additional seats since Wednesday, with flights out of Florida and Caribbean islands, including the Bahamas, Dominican Republic and Jamaica.

Irma will hit Miami and Ft.

The airline industry may be feeling the impact of Irma even worse.

Allegiant Airlines flight 738 was the only flight arriving from Orlando of the day. American says it will continue to evaluate operations at other Florida airports, and will make adjustments as necessary.

There are some evacuations in Fort Lauderdale.

Irma made landfall on Friday night, on the Camaguey Archipelago of Cuba with maximum sustained winds of 160mph, according to the National Hurricane Center.

The airline said it was swapping out smaller aircraft for larger ones on its Florida routes to accommodate the increase demand to leave the peninsula. The airline's chief financial officer, Andrew Levy said Wednesday that Houston would only return to a full schedule as of September 8, 12 days after it started canceling flights.

"Hundreds of Spirit Team Members left their homes in Florida behind to help make sure that the remaining Spirit flights not impacted by the storm could keep flying and we could recover operations as soon as possible", the airline said in a Facebook post.

Meanwhile, Transportation Security Administration officials said they are deploying 250 people at airports in the southeast who will then travel to Florida to assist with airport security after Hurricane Irma moves through the region.
