Ticket Change Due to Coronavirus (COVID-19)


Land to Air Express understands the need for travel flexibility based upon individual circumstances, so we have adjusted our ticket reissue policy to allow you to travel with more confidence.

Through April 30, 2020, we are offering flexible waivers that allow passengers to reissue their ticket to a later date.

Passengers with a Land to Air Express ticket:

  • Purchased on or before April 30, 2020
  • For original travel dates between March 10, 2020 through May 31, 2020

may receive an online account credit through Land to Air Express for the unused value of the ticket.

Online credit requests for the unused value of your ticket must be requested through the Customer Care line at (888) 736-9190 and can be used for up to one year.


To qualify, tickets must be originally purchased from the Land to Air Express Website, Land to Air Express Airport Counter, or through the Land to Air Express Mankato Depot. Tickets purchased from other carriers’ websites, depots, or call centers will not qualify.

Pet Policy 

Land to Air Express does not allow animals of any type other than trained service animals. Please see Service Animals below for more information.

Service Animals

Customers with disabilities accompanied by a service animal are welcome on Land to Air Express. The service animal is the responsibility of its owner and must be under the control of its owner at all times (i.e., leash, harness or carrier). The service animal must ride in the bus within the customer’s space. Service animals may not travel in the aisle or occupy a seat, but the service animal may sit on the customer’s lap. Before admitting customers for bus travel with service animals, drivers are permitted to ask if the animal is required because of a disability and what type of work or task the animal has been trained to perform. Comfort or companionship does not qualify as the work or task of a service animal.

Baggage Policy

Land to Air Express allows each passenger with a purchased ticket two checked bags up to 50lbs each and one lap size carry on at no additional fee. Each additional bag is $15.00. Maximum four bags per adult. Please contact a Land to Air Customer Service Representative at or 507-625-3977 for more information.  

Baggage Liability

Liability for loss or damaged to checked baggage is limited to actual value not to exceed $250 for all baggage checked on one adult ticket or $125 on one half fare ticket unless greater value is declared at time of checking at which time charges for excess value will be collected and receipt issued. Declared value cannot exceed $1000 per passenger. You may purchase excess value protection at the ticket counter but note that it does not cover valuable articles and certain other articles, which are not accepted as baggage. Ask an agent for information concerning restricted articles and limits on the value of baggage checked intrastate. No liability is granted for personal carry-on items.
