Steps Firefly List is Taking With Regards to COVID-19

The World Health Organization has classified the Novel Corona Virus as a pandemic. It’s no secret that this is affecting international travel. While we want people to be travelling as much as possible, safety is a primary concern. We know many members have questions so we’re updating how Firefly List will be functioning in the coming months. That said, feel free as always to email in with any questions at anytime to support@fireflylist.com.

Steps Firefly List Will be Taking:

1. In accordance to CDC advisory, Firefly List will not be sending any deals out to countries with travel advisories (level 2 – 3). These countries include the following but are subject to change: 

China
Iran
Brazil
Italy
Russia
 

2. Beginning today, March 13th, we will be focusing our cheap flight deals on routes departing at least 3 months in advance indefinitely. Flights will only be considered if they depart September or later. On April 13th, we will conduct a similar update to gauge progression of COVID-19 maintaining accordance with State Department and CDC advisories.

What does this mean for cheap flights?

While many routes as much as a year in the future are lower in price as a result of changing demand. Shocks to dynamic markets can be difficult to gauge and we’ll likely be seeing some supply changes on behalf of airlines. We’ll be focusing our efforts toward these further out reduced airfares in the near term and will be evaluating market trends as the situation evolves.

Advice for Travelers:

1. Stay up to date by monitoring the U.S Department of State Travel Guidelines.

2. Many airlines including United are temporarily waiving change fees for flight bookings, consider adding travel/flight insurance. 

3. Consult with your healthcare providers and consider postponing travel to advisory level 2 or 3 countries (listed above.)

 

We’ll be closely monitoring updates via the State Department and responding accordingly.

As always, thanks for being a Firefly List member.
We’re looking forward to finding you the best cheap flight deals.
