United Airlines said on Tuesday that it would offer “up to” 10% off of flights for young adults who book through the airline’s mobile app.

Travellers who are 18-22 years old at the time of booking can get the discount as long as they book the flight using the United mobile app, which is available for both iOS and Android, by December 31, although the travel dates can be later.

United also said that it would purchase carbon offsets for the first 25,000 flights booked through the promotion.

In order to be eligible for the promotion, customers must:

In order to get the discount, users must be the only traveller on their reservation. If you want to travel as part of a group, you’ll have to book separately.

The promotion applies to any flight within the US, Canada, or Mexico, as well as “certain” international destinations, although United did not immediately specify what international cities or countries would be included.

Also keep in mind that the discount only applies to coach tickets – including basic economy. It also applies to seat selection fees for those who purchase basic economy.
