United Airlines Opens New Seattle United Club, Consolidates Operations

Stocks in this article: UAL

SEATTLE, May 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- United Airlines has opened its new United Club lounge in Concourse A at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, the second club to feature the airline's new design concept. The opening coincides with the consolidation of United's terminal facilities to Concourse A, offering customers improved accessibility to gates and a wider variety of concessions.

The 6,096-square-foot United Club in Seattle features a new interior, offering views of the Cascade Mountains, a refreshed bar and lounge overlooking the United terminal and additional workstations and power outlets. The new and improved furnishings enable customers to relax or work with greater ease and comfort.

"The new United Club in Seattle offers customers a warm, relaxing and improved airport lounge experience," said Martin Hand, senior vice president of customer experience at United. "We are investing in our products and facilities, in the air and on the ground, and offering customers more ways to relax, be productive and enjoy their overall travel experience."

United unveiled the new design prototype with the opening of the United Club in Terminal 2 at Chicago O'Hare International Airport last year. United is investing more than $50 million this year to renovate several of the airline's 49 United Club locations. The airline expects to open a new United Club in Terminal 2 at San Diego International Airport later this summer.

Additionally, select United Clubs in several of the airline's hub cities, including Chicago, Los Angeles, Houston and New York/ Newark, will offer members a complimentary guided tasting of Glenfiddich, the world's most awarded single malt Scotch whisky. A custom-made bar will offer customers a dedicated area to enjoy a pre-departure dram while learning about whisky. The tasting events will occur throughout 2013.

As with all United Club lounges, members have access to complimentary snacks, beverages and Wi-Fi.
