Alaska Airlines, the nation’s fifth largest carrier, announced it will permanently eliminate its standard $125 ticket change fee on all bookings except for its basic economy fares, known as “Saver” fares.

The move comes one day after American Airlines and Delta Air Lines followed United’s lead on Sunday in doing so, as carrier attempt to entice travelers to return to the skies amidst the coronavirus pandemic.

The change applies to all Alaska flights as well as flights on its regional subsidiary, Horizon Air.

American, the world’s largest airline, went beyond what United and Delta announced and said it would drop fees for transborder international flights as well as those to the Caribbean, as well as for most domestic tickets.
