Another U.S. airline is waiving change fees for passengers due to coronavirus concerns.

American Airlines announced Sunday that it is waiving change fees on tickets purchased between March 1 and March 16. Changes must be made 14 days prior to travel.

“The offer is available for any of American’s published fares,” airline officials said in a statement.

Last week, JetBlue suspended change and cancellation fees due to coronavirus concerns, citing “peace of mind” for passengers. JetBlue customers won’t pay fees on tickets booked between Feb. 27 and March 11 for travel completed by June. 1.

Alaska Airlines, which also flies out of Logan International Airport, posted a “peace of mind waiver,” waiving change fees for tickets booked between Feb. 27 and March 12, with original travel between Feb. 27 and June 1. New travel must be completed by Dec. 31.
