To qualify for the discount, tickets need to be booked by December 31 and include the following criteria:
Passengers must be MileagePlus Members
Passengers must list their birth date in their MileagePlus profile
The flight must be booked through United’s mobile app
Seats selected for the flight must be in economy
Reservations can only include one passenger
“The reason why we’re doing this is we’re really interested in starting a relationship with newer, younger customers,” Wil Ellingson, principal of planning and integration for MileagePlus, told USA Today.
The discount is valid on flights within the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. Select international flights originated from the U.S. may also qualify for discounts of varying amounts.
In addition, United Airlines is appealing to Gen Z’s environmental consciousness by pledging to offset carbon emissions with its Eco-Skies program for the first 25,000 flights booked through the promotion.
