United opens newest business class lounge in Houston

United has announced it has opened its third Polaris business class lounge with the addition of the new lounge at George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston, Texas, the company said.

United´s latest Polaris lounge exhibits distinct flair from Houston, the culinary and cultural capital of the South. Unique artwork is featured throughout the lounge by two Houstonian artists — Shane Tolbert and Terrell James.

On average, United plans to add one aircraft with the new United Polaris business class seat every 10 days from now through 2020. Beginning July 1, every seat in the United Polaris cabin will be provisioned with a cooling gel pillow. The gel pillow, previously available by request, has proven to be one of the most popular items of United Polaris bedding.

United Airlines and United Express operate approximately 4,600 flights a day to 354 airports across five continents. In 2017, United and United Express operated more than 1.6 million flights carrying more than 148 million customers.
