American Airlines Extends Travel Waiver Through December 31

American Airlines Extends Travel Waiver

American Airlines has extended its offer to waive change fees for customers who purchase tickets by Sept. 30, 2020, for travel through Dec. 31, 2020.

The offer is available for any of American’s fares. The change fee will be waived but customers may still owe any difference in ticket price when rebooking a trip.

  • Any ticket purchased by Sept. 30, 2020 for travel through Dec. 31, 2020, will not incur change fees prior to travel. Customers must pay any fare difference, if applicable, at time of ticketing of the new fare.
  • All AAdvantage® award tickets are included in this offer.
  • Customers are allowed to change their origin and destination cities as part of this offer.

American Airlines now requires all customers over the age of 2 to wear face coverings at airports and onboard, strengthening the airline’s commitment to keeping customers and team members safe. This requirement became effective on July 29, 2020. Due to the safety risk of asymptomatic COVID-19 transmission by individuals without face coverings, all customers must wear a face covering from the time they enter their departure airport and not remove it until they exit their arrival airport. This updated policy expands American’s face covering requirements to include all areas of the airports at which American operates, including Admirals Club lounges, as well as onboard all American flights and does not allow for exemptions for those over 2 years old.
