Some passengers are still stranded at Orlando International Airport on Tuesday after Spirit Airlines canceled hundreds of flights at the airport since Sunday. 

Spirit Airlines has canceled a total of 179 flights at Orlando International Airport, both arriving and departing the airport, Sunday through Tuesday.

In a statement, spokeswoman Carolyn Fennell says the current situation, “can be attributed to a number of factors including weather, staffing reductions, a resumed heavy volume of travelers and certainly the pandemic.”

Fennell says staff at the airport continue to work with Spirit Airlines to distribute information to passengers about rescheduled flights. 

In a separate statement, Spirit says they are, “working to provide refunds for cancellations and, when possible, to re-accommodate our guests.” 

Passengers should check their flight status before arriving at MCO at spirit.com/#flightstatus
