United Airlines

United Airlines (IATA Code: UA) is a U.S. airline based in Chicago, IL. It operates domestic hubs at Chicago O'Hare International Airport (ORD), Denver International Airport (DEN), Washington Dulles (IAD), Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), and San Francisco International Airport (SFO).

Important international airports include London Heathrow (LHR), Frankfurt (FRA), Tokyo Narita (NRT), Hong Kong (HKG), Bangkok (BKK) and Singapore (SIN).

United is the leading U.S. carrier on Hawaii and transpacific routes, with envied route coverage in the Midwestern and Western U.S. United merged with Continental Airlines to further strengthen its route network in Europe and Latin America, and a partnership with US Airways to destinations in the South and Northeast. UA is a founding member, and the largest member, of the Star Alliance. United has a very close relationship on trans-Atlantic flights with Lufthansa and on trans-Pacific routes with All Nippon Airways.


A Legacy of excellence. In 1981, United Airlines began the Mileage Plus program only a week after American Airlines' AAdvantage. Throughout the years, Mileage Plus has offered frequent flyers the way to earn miles for award travel around the world and, has been voted one of the best frequent flyer programs for several consecutive years. And it will continue throughout the years to come. In early March 2012, the Continental OnePass and United Mileage Plus programs merged into the new Mileage Plus program.
