According to USA Today, commercial flights are resuming at most airports that had halted flights over the weekend, although multiple delays are expected.

At least seven airports – Key West, Marathon, Fla., Meridian, Miss., Mobile, Ala., Panama City/Bay County, Fla., Pensacola, Fla., and Tallahassee, Fla. – had grounded commercial flights during the height of the storm, but all are now open for flights, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.

United Airlines reports destinations affected by Dennis include Fort Myers, Fla., New Orleans and Tampa. They have issued waivers that apply to travel July 9-11. Customers with unused tickets for travel may reschedule their travel between the same origin and destination without a change fee. Rescheduled travel for the same itinerary must meet the same rule and booking code restrictions in order to guarantee the original fare. Rescheduled travel on flights and/or dates that do not meet the original restrictions may be subject to higher fares. Travelers wishing to change their tickets must call United by midnight on the date of their originally scheduled flight.
