There have been a ton of flight cancelations due to staffing issues, weather, COVID-19, and more. Some airlines have cut down on their routes, and now, one airline is stopping its route to Orlando completely.
Hawaiian Airlines will be suspending its service between Honolulu and Orlando beginning on September 7th, according to WKMG.
Hawaiian Airlines said this change is due in part to staffing issues and current fuel prices, according to a senior director of public affairs for Orlando International Airport. People booked on flights after September 7th will be getting refunds.
Airlines have been struggling with staffing issues, including a pilot shortage that has been causing flights to be delayed and canceled. Hawaiian Airlines is not the first airline to take away routes recently — Delta Airlines said in May that they would be removing 100 flights per day this summer.
American Airlines also recently announced that 4 cities would be losing service from the airline — Islip, NY; Ithaca, NY; Toledo, Ohio, and Dubuque, Iowa. Each city will lose the service on September 7th.
JetBlue Airways also said they were planning to cut some of its summer schedule in an attempt to avoid too many flight disruptions. So, it seems like even though the summer is a busy travel season, the travel options are becoming more and more limited.
But, we have learned about which airlines are confirmed to be in the new terminal in Orlando International Airport, including Aer Lingus, Emirates, Icelandair, JetBlue, and Lufthansa, among others.
