Over the weekend, Sheltair reported that all of its affected bases in the stat, Tampa International, Lakeland Linder, St. Pete-Clearwater, Albert Whitted, Orlando Executive, Melbourne Orlando International and Jacksonville International airports are now fully operational. Daytona Beach International is still handling only military and humanitarian aid flights.

Naples Airport, which instituted a PPR plan over the weekend, has now resumed full operations but only during daylight hours from 0700 to 1930 local, until further notice due to damage to its runway lighting system.

“NBAA and its members are mobilizing with Floridians to respond to the challenges caused by Hurricane Ian. The ability of business aviation to provide humanitarian assistance in times of crisis is a hallmark of our industry, and our association is coordinating with government and nonprofit organizations on guidance for relief assistance.”
