What if my flight is affected by cyclone bomb? Travel flexibility announced by US Airlines

(CNN) — Major US airlines issued travel ease ahead of what is forecast to be a brutal winter weather bomb cyclone expected to hit the Midwest and other areas of the country later this week.

Chicago, a major airport hub, is projected to be one of the worst-affected cities with the National Weather Service warning of the possibility of a blizzard.

As of Monday night, Chicago-based United Airlines was already offering three different winter season easements: one to the Midwest, one to Texas and one to the East Coast.

The change fee and difference in fares will be waived off for changed reservations within the original ticket and between the same cities within the short rebooking window this month.

United Ease in the Midwest: For passengers who purchased a ticket on United before Saturday, December 17, for travel between December 21 and December 25.

About 30 airports are subject to the measure, including Chicago O’Hare, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Minneapolis and St. Louis. Find out more about each zone on the United website.

Joint Easements in Texas: For those who bought tickets before December 18.

This is for journeys that were booked for December 22-25. More than a dozen airports are subject to measurement, including Austin, Dallas/Fort Worth, El Paso and Houston.

United Ease on the East Coast: For passengers who purchased a ticket on United before Sunday, December 18, for travel between December 22 and December 25.

About 50 airports are subject to this measure, including all major airports in Boston, Charlotte, Cleveland, Nashville, New York City, Philadelphia, Toronto (Canada) and Washington City.
