United Airlines Adds Nearly 25,000 Flights in August

United Airlines recently announced it is tripling the size of its current August schedule compared to its June  schedule, adding nearly 25,000 domestic and international flights compared to July, and plans to fly 40 percent of its overall schedule in August, as compared to August 2019.

While travel demand remains a fraction of what it was at the end of 2019, customers are slowly returning to flying with a preference for leisure destinations, trips to reunite with friends and family, and getaways to places that encourage social distancing.

According to TSA, more than 600,000 passengers passed through airport security checkpoints on June 29, the first time since March 19 that those numbers exceeded 25 percent of pre-COVID levels.

United has overhauled its cleaning and safety procedures under United CleanPlus and is  giving customers more flexibility when booking by extending its waiver of change fees and award redeposit fees for reservations through July 31.
