United Airlines has announced its flight cancellations due to the 2015 East Coast blizzard, as well as rebooking options for its customers.
All United Airlines flights on Tuesday, January 27, 2015 will be cancelled at the following airports: Newark Liberty International (EWR), La Guardia (LGA), John F. Kennedy (JFK), Boston (BOS), and Philadelphia (PHL).
The airline reports other flights throughout the Northeast will also be affected by the snowstorm.
In addition, cancellations and delays are expected at airports in the New York region on Monday evening.
United is encouraging its customers to visit United.com or use the United mobile app for the fastest rebooking options.
Customers can also obtain travel waiver information, check flight statuses, or find alternate flights through the website and app.
The airline suggests travelers use the “Send Notification” function to receive flight updates and alerts from the app or website.
Some users have also gotten help in the past by reaching out to airlines via Twitter, according to Conde Nast Traveler magazine.
United will be waiving the usual rebooking fees for changing flights through the Northeast blizzard region.
In a press release from the company, United Airlines says, “For customers ticketed for travel through the region during this period, United is waiving change fees that otherwise may apply.”
Since phone wait times are lengthy due to the Blizzard of 2015 impacting the East Coast, travelers can connect with United Airlines through the United mobile app, online at United.com, or through Twitter @United for current information on flight cancellations and travel disruptions.
