More cuts to scheduled Florida air service this week

More changes to Florida air service this week with COVID-19 continuing to rage in the state and numbers increasing elsewhere.

  • KLM has suspended service from Amsterdam to both Miami and Orlando until late March.
  • Royal Air Maroc has cancelled Miami to Casablanca service until at least late March.
  • Caribbean Airlines has zeroed out Fort Lauderdale to Port of Spain service until the week before Christmas
  • WestJet Toronto-Miami service is gone until December, Toronto-Fort Lauderdale will operate sub-daily until December.
  • WestJet Orlando to Halifax, Ottawa and Winnipeg service has been cancelled for November. Flights scheduled to return the second week of December.
  • United will not fly Fort Lauderdale-San Francisco until December.
  • Suriname Airlines has cut all Miami-Georgetown, Guyana flights for October
  • Aer Lingus will not serve Miami this winter. Orlando-Dublin has been cut to once a week in November.

Interestingly despite all these cuts to flight to peninsular Florida, air service to Pensacola, Fort Walton Beach/Destin and Panama City are as strong as it has ever been. But those areas are more dependent on beach tourism from the south and Midwest than foreign or northeastern travel.
