United Airlines Takes App to Next Level
"Every day 800,000 customers rely on our mobile app to book reservations, view flight statuses, check-in and access a variety of other handy travel tools we've made available through our app," said Linda Jojo, chief digital officer at United. "We're constantly making updates to the app that help our customers manage their travel with us at the touch of a finger and access even more information about their flights as quickly and conveniently as possible."
United continues to add convenience to the app, providing customers with more time saving tools to make changes or cancel flights directly in the app.
App users will select the option to either cancel or change flights under reservations details, and follow the steps to confirmation. As this new feature debuts, certain reservations, such as reservations purchased through third parties, will continue to united.com to allow customers to make changes. Support for more reservations to be completed in the app will continue to expand in the coming weeks.
Storing Cards in the Apple Wallet
United will also now allow customers to store their United Club card and MileagePlus card in the Apple Wallet. Adding these cards to the wallet will ensure customers always have their information handy when making reservations and checking into United Clubs. United Club members will still scan their boarding passes to access United Club locations before their flight. Members who do not have their MileagePlus number tied to their boarding pass will be able to show their electronic card, along with a same-day boarding pass for United Club access. To add these cards to the wallet, users must be logged into their MileagePlus account in the app, select United Clubs and/or MileagePlus section and then select the "Add to Apple Wallet" icon located under the digital card.
