Cook said it would review flights scheduled for Wednesday and later in the week as the hurricane develops.

The Bahamas is currently bearing the brunt of Dorian with winds of up to 180mph reported.

“As previously stated, this continues to be a very fluid situation,” Cook said. “Hurricane Dorian has proven to be an unpredictable storm.

“We will provide further updates as soon as possible.”

It said it was proactively contacting all customers in Florida and those due to travel in the coming days.

“As with all hurricanes, the local government has tried and tested procedures which are activated when a hurricane warning is issued,” Cook added.

“Our teams on the ground and our hotel partners are working with the authorities to keep our customers safe, comfortable and well-informed. 19 of our special assistance team members flew to Orlando on August 31 and are now helping our customers in Florida in preparation for the Hurricane.”
