Parts of Florida, including parts of Orlando, are expected to be impacted by a storm this week and it’s having an impact on a number of things within the state.

We’ve been watching Tropical Storm Ian which recently became Hurricane Ian and will continue to look for updates in the coming days. Thus far, the storm strengthened and is approaching Florida at or near major hurricane strength. That has prompted the Florida Governor to declare a state of emergency for Florida, and it’s affecting the airport too.

According to the Twitter account for the Orlando International Airport, in anticipation of potential bad weather due to Hurricane Ian the airport has postponed the relocation dates for jetBlue and Caribbean Airlines to Terminal C.

Previously, jetBlue was set to move to Terminal C starting September 27th and Caribbean Airlines was set to move to the terminal on September 30th. Now, the Terminal C website has been updated to state that jetBlue will move to the new terminal on October 4th and Caribbean Airlines will move there on October 7th.
