United Airlines introduces boarding enhancements

United Airlines has announced the expansion of enhancements to its boarding at gates in airports around the world, the company said.

The updated better boarding process gives customers more space at the gate, less time waiting in line and improved boarding information to create a less stressful environment.

The improvements start with reducing the number of boarding lanes from five to two, giving customers added space, more time to relax and less time spent in line.

United´s enhanced boarding also provides an upgraded experience for some of the airline´s top MileagePlus members. United´s MileagePlus Premier 1K customers who previously boarded in group one, will now be invited to pre-board, and United´s MileagePlus Premier Gold customers will also move up in the boarding process from group two to group one.

Beginning September 18, the better boarding appeared at over 1,000 gates across the globe.

United Airlines and United Express operate approximately 4,600 flights a day to 357 airports across five continents. In 2017, United and United Express operated more than 1.6 million flights carrying more than 148 million customers.
