United Airlines extends validity of unused tickets

United Airlines has extended the validity of wholly unused tickets purchased during the pandemic through the end of 2022. 

Previously, the carrier had set March 31as the ticket expiration date. 

Under the new policy, tickets purchased beginning May 1, 2019, through the end of this year will remain valid until Dec. 31, 2022. Tickets purchased beginning Jan. 1 of next year will expire after 12 months.

The extension doesn’t apply to partially used tickets, which expire 12 months from the outbound travel date. 

United resumes allowing changes to basic economy tickets

United will also resume allowing customers to make changes to basic economy tickets through the end of the year. Typically, the carrier doesn’t allow any changes to basic economy tickets, though it did allow such changes through April 30 due to the pandemic. 

The latest basic economy waiver is retroactive to include tickets purchased since April 30 for travel commencing between Aug. 11 and Dec. 31.
