In a statement posted to Twitter on Sunday morning, Orlando International Airport said that weather issues on the Gulf Coast prevented its delivery of jet fuel. In an update, the airport said “the weather has lifted and ships have departed. If flight disruptions occur, airline contingency plans are currently in place.”

On Monday morning, two flights were delayed and four were canceled at the airport, WFTV reported.

The Federal Aviation Administration issued a notice Friday flagging the problem as fog moved into the Gulf Coast and low fuel warnings were issued, The Wall Street Journal reported.

Airport officials told Bay News 9 that airlines have been asked to make sure that incoming flights have additional fuel, to minimize the amount the airport gives each plane.

United Airlines said it would be lengthening some layovers so that planes can get fuel, WFTV reported.

Delta Air Lines said it had not made any changes to its routes, but it is offering passengers flying in or out of Orlando International Airport the option to reschedule their flights until later in the week without paying a change fee or difference in fare.

Southwest Airlines told USA Today it had not made any operational changes to its flight schedule.

Passengers with any planned travel through Orlando International Airport should contact their airline directly to confirm any potential changes to their itinerary.
