In addition to Hurricane Florence off the eastern coast of the continental U.S., Delta’s meteorology and operations teams in the Operations and Customer Center are also keeping a watchful eye on Tropical Storm Isaac in the Caribbean and the remnants of Tropical Storm Olivia near Hawaii.

Delta has issued a waiver for flights to San Juan, P.R., St. Lucia and St. Thomas for Sept. 13 and 14 as Tropical Storm Isaac moves west over the Leeward Islands into the Caribbean Sea. Delta teams will continue to monitor the relatively weak tropical system as the forecast develops over the next few days.

This comes just one day following Tropical Storm Olivia making landfall on the Hawaiian island of Maui where Delta’s operations remained unaffected as the storm crossed the northern tip of the island and continued westward south of Oahu. The system dumped moderate to heavy rain that caused a few road closures from landslides or flooding.

Sept. 11

Hurricane Olivia has been downgraded to a tropical storm and continues approaching Hawaii from the east. It is expected to pass through the islands Tuesday night into Wednesday bringing heavy rainfall, strong winds and high surf. 

Delta's previously issued travel waiver for the Hawaiian Islands remains in effect for affected customers.

There are no schedule adjustments planned for flights to and from Hawaii, though Delta’s operational teams are keeping an eye on the storm. The airline has also capped one-way, non-stop airfares to and from the islands to help those choosing to leave the affected area, ranging by cabin, flight distance and market. Flights from Hawaii to the West Coast range from as low as $499 in Main Cabin and $999 for forward cabin seating, while non-stop flights from Honolulu to Atlanta and Minneapolis range from $749 for Main Cabin up to $1,499 in the forward cabin.

The waiver allows customers travelling to, from or though Honolulu (HNL), Kona (KOA), Lihue (LIH) and Maui (OGG) on Sept. 11 and 12 to make a one-time change to their travel itinerary as Delta's meteorology team continues to monitor the tropical system.

A tropical storm warning has been issued for the Big Island of Hawaii and Maui, while Oahu remains under a tropical storm watch.

Delta has issued a travel waiver for the Hawaiian Islands ahead of potential impacts from Hurricane Olivia.

The storm, which is forecasted to weaken from its Category 1 status to a tropical storm, is approaching Hawaii from the east and is expected to pass through the islands Tuesday night into Wednesday bringing heavy rainfall, strong winds and high surf. This is the second large storm to impact the Hawaiian Islands this summer. Hurricane Lane passed near the islands in late August and was only one of two Category 5 hurricanes to come within 350 miles of Hawaii in the state's history.

A tropical storm warning has been issued for the Big Island of Hawaii and Maui, while Oahu remains under a tropical storm watch.
