Several airlines are offering fee waivers for travelers flying between Tuesday and Friday from, through or to Denver International Airport who want to change their flights before the upcoming winter storm.
A winter storm watch is in effect for the Denver metro area, mountains and cities to the north and on the plains along and north of Interstate 76, according to the National Weather Service. While Denver is forecast to receive 4 to 8 inches of snow, the storm is expected to bring heavy snowfall in surrounding areas and travel could be almost impossible in some parts of the region.
Among the airlines offering waivers:
- United Airlines is waiving the difference in fares as well as change fees for United flights that are rescheduled to the same cities and in the same ticketed cabin, according to a notice posted Sunday. This applies to all tickets purchased by Nov. 22 that are flying to, from or connected to DIA.
- Southwest, which doesn’t charge change fees, is allowing travelers who have flights that depart, connect through or arrive at DIA to rebook their flights on Monday and Tuesday to other flights to the same destinations within 14 days of their reservations without paying additional fees. The new flights have to be booked in the original travel classes or on standby.
- Delta is allowing travelers who have tickets on Tuesday to, from or through DIA to rebook their flights for travel to the same cities by Friday, and it will waive all fees. Travelers also have the option of canceling their tickets without fees and using the credit for another flight within one year.
- Frontier is allowing travelers flying Tuesday to, through or from DIA or Colorado Springs to change their flights without paying additional fees. The new travel must occur by Dec. 18, and passengers are able to change the cities of travel.
- JetBlue is waiving any change or cancellation fees and fare differences for flights on Monday and Tuesday to, from or through DIA. Travelers can rebook their tickets for travel through Friday.
