Uncomfortable Flying without the Mask Mandate? These Airlines May Offer You a Refund

Read Time:48 Seconds

April 25. One week ago, a federal judge in Florida voided the federal transportation mask mandate and most airports and major airlines in the United States dropped masking requirements. But not everyone may be comfortable taking to the skies without knowing their fellow passengers are masking up.

With passengers in mind, United Airlines CEO Scott Kirby told the Today Show last week that people who are uncomfortable flying — like parents with young children who are not yet eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine — may be offered a credit or a refund.

A spokeswoman for United Airlines pointed to the carrier’s change policy, which allows no-fee changes for all tickets except basic economy fares. Earlier this month, United also said it will allow customers with basic economy tickets to either upgrade to a standard economy ticket or cancel it for a fee.

United has also extended the window to redeem flight credits through Dec. 31, 2023.
