Hurricane Dorian flight cancellations impacting Costa Rica today
Hurricane Dorian has caused just two flight cancellations Wednesday at Juan Santamaría International Airport (SJO) as airports in Florida reopen.
According to flight tracking website FlightAware, both cancelled flights are operated by low-cost carrier Spirit, which flies to Costa Rica from the Florida cities of Fort Lauderdale and Orlando.
While Fort Lauderdale International Airport (FLL) reopened Tuesday afternoon, Orlando (MCO) remains closed until midday Wednesday, prompting Spirit’s cancellations to and from that airport.
JetBlue, which also operates a daily Orlando-San José (Alajuela) route, currently shows a five-hour delay for those flights.
Hurricane Dorian forced 19 cancellations between the U.S. mainland and San José on Monday and Tuesday, per FlightAware.
Most U.S. airlines have waived change fees and are offering additional flexibility to travelers impacted by Hurricane Dorian. Check with your airline to make changes to your reservation and for current flight information.
And if you’re stuck in San José for an extra night, consider these day trip options from Costa Rica’s capital city.
