The first commercial flight into Jacksonville International Airport after Hurricane Irma’s destructive landfall arrived Tuesday morning at approximately 8:30.

 

Since then, flights are continuing as allowed by the airlines, said Debbie Jones, community relations administrator for the airport.

To check the status of an airline flight, Jones said customers and travelers must check with their respective airline. The airport, she said, operates more as a landlord and that different flights may be hindered for reasons outside its control.

The airport cleared all inspections required for commercial operations Monday by 7 p.m., and the first flight was scheduled for Tuesday morning.

Travelers can check the airport’s website at flyjacksonville.com for information about arriving and departing flights — but the information might not be as up-to-date as needed, Jones said. Sometimes technologies slow after events such as Irma.
