United Continental Holdings, Inc. has expanded travel options for United and Continental customers whose flight plans may be affected by severe winter weather in Europe. Weather conditions are expected to continue to make air travel difficult, forcing some delays and cancellations of flights to and from London, Paris, Frankfurt, Munich, Brussels and Amsterdam airports this week. Seattle and Puget Sound residents should check with the airlines or their travel agent to find out about delays if they are holding tickets for flights to any of these cities over the Christmas to New Year holiday.

Customers scheduled on flights to, from or through these airports through Dec. 24 may reschedule their itinerary with a one-time date or time change, and the change fees will be waived. If a flight has been canceled, a refund in the original form of payment may be requested. Complete details and eligible travel dates are available at United and Continental’s websites.
The fastest and most convenient way to change travel plans is via these two websites. Customers should continue to manage their reservations on the respective company’s website from which their ticket was purchased.
