How thousands of travelers inspired a hashtag - United Hub
United Journey

Share your #UnitedJourney

By The Hub team, January 05, 2018

Inspired by people who step on board our planes every week — headed to new destinations, exciting opportunities, and milestone moments — we dreamed up the hashtag #UnitedJourney to help bring these moments together.

Celebrating excursions big and small, the hashtag #UnitedJourney is more than just a way to join a social media conversation about the love of travel. It's an opportunity for flyers to motivate each other with new feats of wanderlust. To spark the imaginations of globe-trotters and weekenders alike, to continue surprising themselves and the world with all the places their passion for travel can lead.

Thousands have already shared their moments of wanderlust over social media using the hashtag. The pics and videos posted are as diverse and unique as our travelers themselves — featuring bold adventures, favorite spots, and stories of chasing a passion or discovering a brand new one. We've seen China, Buenos Aires, London, New York City, Sri Lanka and beyond through the eyes of our passionate travelers — and it's only the beginning.

CHICAGO and DES PLAINES, Ill., Sept. 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- United and Honeywell today announced a joint multimillion-dollar investment in Alder Fuels – a cleantech company that is pioneering first-of-its-kind technologies for producing sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) at scale by converting abundant biomass, such as forest and crop waste, into sustainable low-carbon, drop-in replacement crude oil that can be used to produce aviation fuel.
