WASHINGTON (CNN) -- As Hurricane Isabel approaches, the major airlines are offering passengers the opportunity to reschedule without penalty -- and in some cases cancel -- travel in the coming days to destinations on the East Coast and in the Caribbean Sea.

Customers ticketed through Sunday on Delta Air Lines can rebook if they are flying to or through the following cities: Allentown, Harrisburg and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Atlantic City, New Jersey; Baltimore, Maryland; Charlottesville, Lynchburg, Newport News, Norfolk, Richmond or Roanoke, Virginia; Fayetteville, Raleigh/Durham or Wilmington, North Carolina; Myrtle Beach, South Carolina; or Washington.

The rebooked flights must be scheduled for no later than September 30.

Delta spokesman Anthony Black advised passengers to check the company's Web site or call reservations.

U.S. Airways is offering what it calls a "flexible travel policy" to affected customers, including the option of receiving a refund for ticket's full value to destinations that include Myrtle Beach, Norfolk, Raleigh/Durham, Richmond, Washington and New Bern, North Carolina.

In addition, passengers booked on flights to Bermuda, the Bahamas and Providenciales can take advantage of this travel policy through September 28.

Continental Airlines spokesman Rahsaan Johnson said that airline's policy is to offer rebookings and refunds without penalty to customers whose flights are canceled.

Passengers who choose to rebook can do so without paying a penalty fee if done by Friday and travel is rescheduled by October 12 to destinations that include Norfolk, Raleigh, the Bahamas, Richmond and Myrtle Beach.

American Airlines is offering passengers set to travel in the next few days the chance to rebook flights to or from the District of Columbia, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, New York and New Jersey. Reservations can be changed as late as next Tuesday, according to the airline's Web site.

United Airlines and United Express also are waiving change fees for travel through Sunday to or from the District of Columbia, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia and North Carolina.

Customers with unused tickets for travel within that time period have until November 15 to reschedule their flight without charge.
