Tomorrow we’ll open the third United ClubSM location showcasing our new design concept – this one in Terminal 2 at San Diego International Airport (SAN). As one of the largest airlines at San Diego International Airport, we offer 45 flights a day to our eight domestic hubs. The United Club opening coincides with the consolidation of our terminal facilities to the newly expanded Terminal 2 West.
The 5,842-square-foot United Club in San Diego is on the terminal’s mezzanine level, directly above the airport’s new Sunset Cove. The location of the lounge affords spectacular panoramic views of the Point Loma seaside community as well as the airfield. Its open layout features 119 seats and a centrally located buffet and bar, including balcony lounge seating in the atrium. The walls are dotted with vintage airline photos. The new furnishings are conducive to relaxing or getting work done with greater ease and comfort. As with all United Club lounges, members may enjoy complimentary snacks, beverages and Wi-Fi.
“The new United Club in San Diego offers customers an improved airport lounge experience that reflects a true Southern California ambiance,” said Martin Hand, our senior vice president of customer experience. “Our investment in our clubs and airport facilities worldwide underscores our ongoing commitment to improving the overall travel experience for our customers.”
Gate relocations and other improvements
We’re consolidating our operations at San Diego International Airport, relocating gates to Terminal 2 West and moving our ticket counters to the west end of the terminal. The enhancements give our customers a new ticketing lobby, baggage claim area and improved shopping and dining options.
We’re investing more than $50 million this year to renovate several of our 49 United Club locations. We unveiled the new design prototype with the opening of the United Club in Terminal 2 at Chicago O’Hare International Airport last year, and we recently opened a newly designed United Club at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.
