CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Officials with Joint Base Charleston say the re-opening of runways shared by them and Charleston International Airport has not yet been determined. 

Airport officials had originally stated that they will reopen the airport on Saturday and hope to resume commercial air service at 12 p.m.

However JBC officials said in a statement that the reopening of the runways has not been determined, however it was possible the runways will be operational on Sunday at 6 a.m. once weather conditions subside. 

“We are committed to not only protecting the base from the effects of the storm, but assessing and recovering from any damage in a timely fashion,” said Col. Clint ZumBrunnen, 437th Airlift Wing commander. “Reopening the airfield will be contingent upon winds subsiding to limits for flight and in coordination with the lifting of the Governor’s mandatory evacuation order.”

Customers should contact their air carrier for information on cancellations, for rebooking assistance and for information on travel waivers.

Airport parking facilities are still open so passengers who are able to return to Charleston may pick up their cars.
