Hurricane Irma: Airline rebooking policies

Here are details of rebooking policies of American Airlines, BA, Norwegian and Virgin Atlantic in response to Hurricane Irma.

London Air Travel » Miami

Hurricane Irma - Naples (Credit: MSNBC)
Hurricane Irma – Naples – Sunday 10 September(Credit: MSNBC)

In response to Hurricane Irma, here are the published rebooking policies by airline.  Given the very fluid situation and unknown extent of disruption both the dates of flights eligible for proactive rebooking may change and the date up to which you can rebook may change (as they have already done) in the coming days.

Please note that if you have booked a tour package via a travel agent, the options below may not apply and you should contact your travel agent directly.

It is also worth noting that if you are due to fly via Miami on BA or Virgin to another destination in the Americas it is worth exploring an alternative routing via the hubs of their partner airlines.

BA has extensive codeshares with Iberia from Madrid and American Airlines from hubs such as Dallas Forth Worth and New York JFK.  Virgin also has extensive codeshares with Delta from hubs such as Atlanta and New York JFK.

If your flight is cancelled you will be entitled to a full refund and reimbursement of reasonable incidental expenses.  If your flight is operating but you choose to rebook to an alternative date/destination any consequential costs may not be met by the airline.

It’s also worth noting that many smaller hotels / guest houses in Florida have already closed for business until next week.  Larger properties have also waived change / cancellation fees.

Airlines have also introduced flexible rebooking policies for passengers due to travel to the region in the coming days.

Hurricane information from public bodies and media

The best source of information of the progress of Hurricane Irma is the National Hurricane Center and its Atlantic operations Twitter feed..

There is also evacuation guidance from The City of Miami Beach and Miami-Dade County.

For television news coverage outside the US CNN International will be rebroadcasting CNN’s US domestic service over much of the weekend.

A large number of local TV stations in Florida are also streaming live coverage including:

Miami: WPLG – ABC 10, WFOR – CBS 4, WTVJ – NBC 6 and WSVN FOX 7.

Tampa: WFTS – ABC 28, WFLA – NBC 8, WTSP – CBS 10 and WTVT – Fox 13.

Orlando: WFTV – ABC 9, WESH -NBC 2, WKMG – CBS 6 and WOFL – FOX 35

The Miami Herald is also free to access during the hurricane.

Here are the published rebooking policies by airline.  Please note that if you have booked a tour package via a travel agent, the options below may not apply and you should contact your travel agent directly.

Aer Lingus launches Dublin – Miami from 1 September 2017

Aer Lingus has confirmed it is to launch a new route from Dublin to Miami.

The airline will fly to Miami three times a week from Friday 1 September 2017.

The route will operate using an A330 aircraft in a two class, economy and business, configuration.

Whilst Miami is served by a number of airlines direct from London Heathrow, this news is of particular interest as Dublin offers US Customs & Immigration pre-clearance and passengers can avoid long immigration queues at Miami airport.

The route will be codeshared with British Airways and by the time the route is operating Aer Lingus should be a member of the Oneworld alliance so members of Oneworld member airline frequent flyer programmes should be able to earn miles and asssociated benefits on these flights.

Separately, Aer Lingus has also announced more flights to Los Angeles, Orlando and Chicago for the summer of 2017.  Flights will operate daily to Los Angeles, 4 times weekly to Orlando and twice daily to Chicago.

The airline has also announced new short haul routes to Porto in Portugal and Split in Croatia.

In terms of what hasn’t been announced, there is still no date for Aer Lingus rejoining Oneworld or a date for the start of co-operation between Aer Lingus and American Airlines.

Flights are on sale now at Aer Lingus.

Dublin – Miami

Flight EI141 Depart Dublin 15:00 – Arrive Miami 19:15 (Wednesday, Friday, Sunday)
Flight EI140 Depart Miami 21:10 – Arrive Dublin 10:35 (Wednesday, Friday, Sunday)

British Airways has confirmed that its London Heathrow – Miami route will be served exclusively by the Airbus A380 from Sunday 25 October 2015.

The A380 will operate twice daily, replacing up to three daily Boeing 747/777 flights.

The A380 currently operates on selected flights to Hong Kong, Johannesburg, Los Angeles, Singapore, Washington, and, from April 2015, San Francisco.

There’s more information on BA’s A380 operations at ba.com. As this announcement has been made nearly a year in advance, we should sound a note of caution that further changes could be announced in the interim.

BA flights from London Heathrow to Miami are also due to move from London Heathrow Terminal 5 to 3 from 14 October 2015.

Update January 2018:

BA now operates one of two daily flights to Miami (BA208 / BA209) with the Airbus A380 in the winter season until Monday 30 April 2018. The route then operates with a Boeing 747 twice daily until Saturday 27 October 2018. The A380 then returns on Sunday 28 October 2018.
