Airlines are taking action!

Airlines work closely with the Federal Aviation Administration and other industry partners to reduce the impact on air travel when inclement weather is expected. Preparation efforts and communication amongst parties increases before, during and immediately following significant weather events, including summer afternoon thunderstorms, hurricanes and winter snow.

Highly-trained experts in meteorology and air traffic management work to reduce the impact of weather delays on passengers 24/7, 365.

  • Alert any schedule changes to the FAA’s air traffic “Command Center” in Warrenton, VA.
  • Monitor airport arrival demand to make the most of airport capacity and performance.
  • Address the effects of bad weather on airspace traffic and congestion.

Airlines want to give customers the most up-to-date information possible, especially when disruptions to travel may occur. High-capability weather modeling and real-time tools allow the airlines to identify weather patterns like never before. Tracking and monitoring weather trends gives us the ability to adjust flight paths that keep flights moving.

Early decision-making helps U.S. airlines proactively adjust operations plans in a way that benefits passengers, employees and aircraft. It reduces the amount of time lost for passengers and helps accommodate travelers on the next available flight.

The use of social media, alerts, mobile applications and website updates gives passengers more access than ever before to the latest scheduling and weather information.
