Airlines Waive Change Fees for Several Florida Cities

Several major airlines are waiving change fees for certain Florida cities that could be impacted by Elsa, which has strengthened to a Category 1 hurricane on Tuesday.

Delta, for example, is waiving certain change fees for Fort Myers, Key West, Sarasota, and Tampa.

The airline says it will waive fees if the new travel date is on or before July 10 in the same cabin of service as originally booked.

American Airlines is offering similar waivers for the same cities—but you have to rebook by July 7.

According to the National Hurricane Center, Tropical Storm Elsa made landfall along Cuba’s southern coast Monday afternoon.

The system has prompted a tropical storm warning along the west coast of Florida extending northward.

A hurricane watch was in effect from Egmont Key, in the Tampa Bay region, to the Steinhatchee River some 180 miles north along the Gulf Coast, with Elsa, now a hurricane, due to make landfall on Wednesday morning. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said the storm was expected to come ashore between 8 a.m. and 9 a.m. ET around the Tampa Bay area.
