As numerous flights have been canceled due to Hurricane Irma, Los Angeles International Airport officials say they have Guest Services staff on hand to help people stranded or arriving at LAX.

Twenty-four flights to Florida were canceled Saturday, and 17 flights out of the storm area to LAX were also canceled, said LAX Public Information Officer Frederick Badlissi. Flights to and from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood, Orlando, Miami and Tampa were affected.

“In addition to their normal availability, LAX’s Guest Services will be available to provide information and basic assistance to travelers stranded at the airport by Irma,” Badlissi said. “They will be available from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. (Saturday) and Sunday.

He also said LAX officials are currently monitoring developments related to Hurricane Irma and the recent earthquake in Mexico, and are in constant contact with airports in the affected regions, as well as the airlines that operate between LAX and those airports.
