United is offering flight discounts for young travelers
Discount fares for young travelers used to be quite common. Not anymore.
So let’s hope United Airlines’ new promotion (re)starts that trend.
For now: here’s the deal:
If you’re between the ages of 18 to 22 and looking to book a flight on United, you can get a 10% discount if you’re a MileagePlus member with your birth date in your profile and if you book your trip through the airline’s mobile app by December 31, 2019.
As a bonus, and because young people are said to be all about saving the earth, United will also offset carbon emissions for the first 25,000 customers who travel using this promotion.
Some extra details on United’s discount plan for young people:
*The promotion applies to new flights booked between now and December 31, 2019, including flights departing after the promotion period ends.
*Flights within the United States, Canada, or Mexico, and some international destinations, are eligible for the discount.
Next up? Let’s bring back cheap standby fares.
