Airlines Letting Passengers Cancel Flights to Zika Virus Areas

As the Zika virus spreads from South America into Caribbean island nations (including the U.S. Virgin Islands), airlines have begun letting passengers cancel flights without penalty.

If you or your partner are or could be pregnant, call the airline to learn if you can cancel for a full refund. The airlines are changing their policies on this daily, so Hang Up / Call Again (“HUCA”) tomorrow if you do not get a good answer today.

You can see a map from the Center for Disease Control showing areas of the United States where Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus mosquitoes capable of spreading Zika virus are found.
