TS Maria causes flights, ferry cancellations

Several flights to and from Bermuda have been cancelled as Tropical Storm Maria continues to head towards the Island.

American Airlines has cancelled this afternoon's flights from New York and Miami. As a result, flights scheduled tomorrow morning to the two cities have also been cancelled.

JetBlue meanwhile has cancelled flights to and from Boston and New York scheduled for tomorrow.

The airline is however offing to waive booking fees and fare differences for travellers who were scheduled to travel to or from Bermuda tomorrow by calling 1-800-884-9616 (or 1-800-538-2583, if outside Bermuda).

The Department of Marine and Ports also announced this afternoon that it would be cancelling ferry service between Hamilton and St George's today and tomorrow due to the storm.

The tropical storm is expected to pass 134nm to the Island's west-northwest at around 1pm tomorrow, bringing wind, rain and rough seas.
