Am I covered to cancel my trip if my flight is cancelled because of the airport closure?

Last Updated:

Standard Trip Cancellation policies will likely not provide cancellation benefits due to the shooting.

More Detail

Trip Cancellation policies only cover specific events that cause flights to be delayed or cancelled. Common covered reasons include inclement weather, natural disasters, terrorist attacks, and mechanical breakdown of the common carrier. Unless the shooting is deemed a terrorist attack, it will not be covered under standard Trip Cancellation policies.

Coverage is subject to change at any time as the investigation into the shooting continues and more information is released.
