Airline travel waivers are provided as Hurricane Hilary approaches the west coast of the Baja California peninsula in order to provide travelers with flexibility in case the storm alters their travel schedules.

Due to Hurricane Hilary’s predicted impact on flight schedules, a number of airlines are releasing airline travel waivers to change costs for travelers this weekend.

According to weather tracker Zoom Earth, the tropical storm was positioned in the Pacific Ocean south of Cabo San Lucas on Saturday and was moving toward southern California.

The US Embassy in Mexico City issued a warning about heavy downpours, strong winds, and high surf that might cause flash floods in some areas of Mexico and California. 

Among the expanding number of airlines giving airline travel waivers and allowing free flight changes, this weekend are the American Airlines, Delta, Southwest, and United.

With less than 200 US flights canceled as of around 5 pm on Saturday, cancellations were still at a low level.

According to the flight-tracking site FlightAware, there were more than 2800 delayed flights at ET.

The Department of Transportation‘s policy states that if a flight is canceled for any reason passengers are automatically entitled to a refund be given airline travel waivers although airlines are given more latitude in the event of delays.

Travelers can use a dashboard provided by the DOT to understand how airlines handle compensation for delays.
