Florida Airports May Be Out Until Midweek

Hurricane Wilma could hold up travelers another day.


Southwest operations in Orlando and Tampa were largely unaffected.

Virtually all carriers, including JetBlue Airways Corp. -- which services Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers, Orlando, Tampa, and West Palm Beach -- were allowing passengers whose flights were canceled by Wilma to rebook their travel without change fees or fare differences.

Federal Aviation Administration officials said Wilma necessitated the closure of nine Florida airports; others included facilities in Boca Raton, Hollywood-North Perry, Key West, Kissimmee Gateway, Marathon, Fort Myers Page Field, Pompano Beach Airpark and Witham Field in Stuart.
