It is anticipated that the storm will move up the Gulf of Mexico before striking the west coast of Florida, Jamaica, the Cayman Islands, and Cuba.

In addition to potentially affecting travel along the entire coast from the Keys to Fort Myers, Sarasota, Tampa, and all the way up to the Panhandle, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has already proclaimed a state of emergency for the entire state of Florida, largely due to predictions that the hurricane’s eye will span a distance of 450 miles.

This would impact popular tourist destinations as well as major population centers in interior cities like Orlando and on the east coast of Florida, which includes the Miami-Fort Lauderdale region.

Airlines such as American, Delta and United have already issued a travel warning. Details on rescheduling or canceling flights are likely to follow, and they will almost certainly offer waivers of change fees.

In addition, a quarter of Sunday’s flights at Owen Roberts International Airport on Grand Cayman have already been canceled.

“We are closely monitoring Tropical Storm Ian which is expected to impact parts of the Caribbean and Florida. The safety of our customers and team members is the airline’s No. 1 priority, and the team will remain in contact with those impacted,” American Airlines said in a statement to FOX 35 News in Florida. “Ahead of the storm, American issued a travel alert to provide additional flexibility for customers whose travel may be impacted by Tropical Storm Ian.”

As a result of Hurricane Fiona, which has already reached islands in the eastern Caribbean and made its way all the way up to Canada, cruise lines have already begun modifying their itineraries.
