If you need any more incentives to get vaccinated against COVID-19, how about free flights? If you enter United Airlines’ new “Your Shot to Fly” sweepstakes, you might be one of five lucky winners to receive free flights (up to 26!) for two, in any cabin for an entire year.
Entering the sweepstakes is simple. If you’re not already a part of United’s loyalty program, sign up. Then, as a new MileagePlus® member, upload your vaccination record to the app or website between May 24 and June 22, 2021.
The airline is also offering 30 second-place winners one free round trip for two in any cabin. The tickets will only be valid round-trip on United and United Express flights — not any of their partner airlines.
“We’re proud to do our part to incentivize people to get their shot,” said United CEO Scott Kirby in a press release. “Thanks to the vaccine, more and more destinations are opening up for travel – and we know our customers are eager to fly. We’re excited to give people one more reason to get vaccinated so they can reunite with friends and family or take that long-awaited vacation which all could be just one shot away.”
The five grand prize winners will be selected on July 1, 2021. The 30 second-place winners will be picked randomly in June.
United Airlines has been preparing for upcoming summer travel. In September 2020, they added flights to Africa, India, and Hawaii to their routes. Recently they added long-haul routes to Croatia, Greece, and Iceland.
