TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — With the threat of Hurricane Dorian closing in on South Florida, that could have an impact on travel here in the Big Bend.

Tallahassee International Airport is already gearing up for how the storm might affect those traveling by plane.

For now, every plane at Tallahassee International Airport is coming and going as planned but that is expected to change as Dorian closes in on the state.

It's a busy travel weekend. For now, the best thing for anyone planning to catch a flight to do is call the airline company and get the latest information on their end.

All the major airlines have issued travel waivers allowing some affected passengers change their flights without any fees.

Delta is also waiving pet in-cabin and baggage fees on flights from certain airports in order to help with evacuations.

"At this point, we're at normal operation. That means flights are coming in and out just fine. As we monitor the track of the storm, we do expect impacts. Particularly Monday, Tuesday time-frame," said David Pollard, Tallahassee International Airport Director of Aviation. "So again, check with your airline if you have any travel plans Monday and Tuesday. Then we'll continue to put additional information as it become available to us."
