United permanently drops change fees for US flights
United Airlines has announced two major changes to its ticketing policies, as the coronavirus pandemic continues to shake up the aviation industry.
The carrier has permanently removed change fees for all standard economy and Premium tickets for travel within the US.
United – along with most other carriers worldwide – has been waiving change fees on all flights over the last few months in the light of global travel restrictions.
This policy has been extended until December 31, but the carrier has now gone one step further by removing the charge altogether from January for flights within the US, with no limit to the number of times changes can be made.
In addition from January 1 all United customers on domestic and international services will have the option to list for same-day standby travel.
