How far in advance do airlines cancel flights?

Last updated on April 25, 2023

Airlines do not have a standard timeline for canceling flights, but typically will do so anywhere from a few hours to several days in advance of the scheduled flight. You can receive notifications of flight changes or cancellations by signing up for their email and text alerts or through the airline’s website or mobile app.
