ORLANDO, Fla. — The Orlando International Airport said Thursday that flights to and from the airport will be affected because President Donald Trump restricted specific international travel into the United States on Wednesday.
The airport said Trump’s proclamation prevents most foreign nationals from coming to the United States if they have visited certain European countries two weeks prior to their scheduled arrival.
Officials said international visitors will not be allowed to come to the U.S. if they have visited the following countries:
Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.
About 92 inbound flights could be affected during the 30-day restricted travel period, the airport said.
The travel restrictions could affect the following airlines and destinations:
· Delta Air Lines (Amsterdam, Netherlands)
· Icelandair (Reykjavík, Iceland)
· Lufthansa (Frankfurt, Germany)
· Norwegian Airlines (Paris, France and Oslo, Norway)
The airport said that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security plans within the next two days to require U.S. passengers who have been to that part of Europe to travel through select airports that have enhanced screening procedures. OIA said it is not a screening airport.
