The Coronavirus continues to have an impact on worldwide travel as the virus continues to spread across China with cases now reported in at least 16 countries globally. To date, at least 130 people have died and the number of confirmed cases has reached nearly 6,000, according to Chinese officials.

The United States has since expanded the screening of travelers arriving from Wuhan and several airlines have suspended flights and are providing waivers for flights to and from China and Japan. As a reminder, airline waivers allow a traveler to change to alternate flights without paying a change fee, subject to terms specific to the airline.

Airlines that have issued waivers for Wuhan related travel to date are below. Should you wish to apply a waiver code, please reach out to our 24/7 support agents.
