Delta restarts flights in cities Hurricane Michael passed through

Panama City Beach airport still closed

Delta Air Lines said Thursday it has “largely resumed” flights in cities that Hurricane Michael passed through.

However, Panama City Beach Airport remains closed until Friday afternoon due to damage to the terminal and airport infrastructure, according to Delta.

The airline said its flights in the rest of coastal Florida and southern Georgia are operating on a normal schedule.

Atlanta-based Delta said it does not expect disruptions at its hub at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport on Thursday.

The airline said as the storm move across eastern North Carolina, it doesn’t expect flight disruptions but may need to adjust schedules if crosswinds exceed safety limits.
