Recently, we introduced a new mobile version of united.com. The new mobile site will offer our customers and employees a smoother and more efficient experience when navigating our website via their smart phones.

The new mobile site features a refreshed home page offering the following improvements:

  • Optimized smartphone displays consistent with other digital channels
  • Supports bookings from the U.S. and Japanese points of sale, and site users can select Japanese translations
  • In addition to viewing reservations, users can create and change revenue flights as well as MileagePlus award bookings
  • FareLock is available, allowing customers to hold a new revenue or award booking for ticketing at a later time
  • Ability to review MileagePlus account information
  • Ability to consistently deliver weather and service alerts via homepage
  • Full check-in and flight status functionality

The new mobile website allows customers and employees a more seamless experience anywhere they go.

"We want to ensure our customers can reach us whenever and wherever they need us," said Principal Business Analyst Karla Padbury. "While we already have an excellent mobile app, we recognize that not all customers have access to it for a variety of reasons, and they choose to connect with United via a browser on their mobile devices. We're excited to provide these customers with a mobile-friendly site that allows them to conveniently manage their travel plans."

By United Newsroom, September 09, 2021

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. When used together across the fuel lifecycle, the Alder technologies, coupled with Honeywell's Ecofining™ process, could have the ability to produce a carbon-negative fuel at spec with today's jet fuel. The goal of the technologies is to produce fuel that is a 100% drop-in replacement for petroleum jet fuel.
