deltalogo_11431228Delta expects continued disruption to Fort Lauderdale flying for the rest of the day, following reports of a shooting in the baggage claim area in Terminal 2 where Delta operates. Earlier today, Delta CEO Ed Bastian extended his condolences to the people of Fort Lauderdale and Broward County.

 

As of 3:45 p.m. ET Friday, Delta has diverted six FLL-bound flights to Palm Beach International Airport, Miami International Airport, Orlando International Airport and Jacksonville International Airport and cancelled 14 flights. The airline operates 33 peak-day flights from Fort Lauderdale to 9 destinations.

 

The Federal Aviation Administration has issued a nationwide groundstop for traffic through Fort Lauderdale this time.

 

Delta is working closely with law enforcement in their investigation, and out of respect to that investigation, details about the suspect will come from law enforcement officials.

 

Specially trained Delta Care Team members have been activated and are traveling to Fort Lauderdale to assist families and friends of customers and employees who may have been impacted by the shooting at the Fort Lauderdale International Airport.

 

Delta has issued a waiver for customers traveling to or from Fort Lauderdale to change their travel plans free of penalty, and the airline is working to re-accommodate customers.
