We recommend keeping a close eye on your flight status flying into and out of Orlando International Airport. Delays happen, cancellations occur, and weather often causes problems. Today, though, one airline is having some technical issues that have resulted in over 100 Orlando flights being canceled.

If you plan on flying to or from Orlando today and you’ve booked a flight on Southwest Airlines, be sure to check your flight status immediately. According to the Orlando Sentinel, Southwest Airlines has canceled 72 flights inbound and 43 outbound flights today.

The company took to social media last night announcing that it was experiencing flight disruptions due to an “intermittent technology issue.” Southwest recommends that passengers check their flight status and contact the airline for rebooking options.

If your flight is canceled, contact Southwest immediately to make other arrangements. Be sure to be aware of the airline’s cancelation policies because you may be entitled to a refund for your ticket or some other form of compensation. If the cancellation results in your next flight being the next day and you need an overnight stay, you might also be compensated for a night at a hotel.

Southwest’s issues are expected to be resolved by tomorrow, but even if things resume as normal, it’s a good idea to stay on top of your flights, no matter when you’re traveling.
