The airport is reopening after closing for Hurricane Irma. Once winds diminished to a safe level Monday morning, airport personnel began assessing damage to the facility, cleaning up the airfield and testing key systems to bring them back on line, according to airport officials.

The initial damage assessment and inspection identified:

  • Water intrusions throughout the Main Terminal
  • Torn canopies on departure and arrival curbs on both A & B sides of Main Terminal
  • Debris and obstructions on airport roadway system
Prior to the arrival of the storm, airport employees were directed on when to return to work by their individual employers. They are urged to call company hotlines to confirm their status before returning to work. TSA employees should call 407-563-6681 for more information. Greater Orlando Aviation Authority personnel are scheduled to return on Tuesday, September 12, 2017 as long as it is safe to do so.
