Airlines are providing waivers as Hurricane Hilary approaches the west coast of the Baja California peninsula to provide travelers flexibility in case the storm alters their travel plans.

As it approaches land, Hurricane Hilary is causing schedule disruptions for airlines, sporting activities, and other events.

The now Category 3 storm has prompted the National Weather Service to issue a first-ever Tropical Storm Watch for Southern California, spanning from the southern border to just north of Los Angeles.

According to Department of Transportation policy, passengers are automatically entitled to a refund if their flight is canceled for any reason, including Hurricane Hilary. However, airlines are given more latitude in the event of delays. The DOT maintains a dashboard that can be used by passengers to understand how airlines handle delay compensation.

Before it reaches southern California, Hurricane Hilary is predicted to weaken even further to a tropical storm. In more than 80 years, it would be the first tropical storm to make landfall in the US state.

Some passengers booked on flights with American between August 20 and 21 won’t be charged any change costs, but their new flight must depart by August 25.

Passengers flying into, out of, or through the following cities are covered by Hurricane Hilary: Bakersfield, California (BFL), Burbank, California (BUR), Los Angeles, California (LAX), Ontario, California (ONT), Palm Springs, California (PSP), San Diego, California (SAN), San Luis Obispo, California (SBP), Santa Ana/Orange County, California (SNA), and Santa Barbara, California (SBA).

Additionally, due to Hurricane Hilary, American Airlines is waiving change costs for travelers departing from and arriving at Los Cabos International Airport in Mexico on August 19–20. Their new trip must be taken before August 22.
