SALT LAKE CITY — Multiple airlines reacted to Tropical Storm Dorian, which is barreling its way toward Puerto Rico and potentially Florida, by offering fee waivers and altered routes.

Tropical Storm Dorian grew a little stronger this week and is slowly approaching the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico, according to the National Hurricane Center. Areas as such the U.S. Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Vieques and Culebra currently have hurricane watches in place. Tropical storm warnings exist for the British Virgin Islands, Dominican Republic and Isla Saona, according to Fox News.

Spirit, Frontier and Delta all posted on Twitter about their changes.

Spirit Airlines said it will issue a travel advisory, offering flexible travel policies to multiple airports for flights between Aug. 27 and Aug. 30.

Frontier Airlines will cancel flights from Aug. 28 and Aug. 29 from multiple airports, too.

Delta has issued a travel waiver for Aug. 28 due to the forecasted weather conditions.

The passengers can rebook their canceled flights without having to worry about change fees. Delta customers who are going to Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Haiti and Saint Lucia can cancel their flight and receive a refund for a future flight, according to Fox News.

Meanwhile Southwest is asking customers traveling to Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, and the Turks and Caicos to rebook their flight within 14 days of expected travel date.
