United Airlines rolls out the red carpet in Chicago

24th July 2008 Print
United customers travelling through Chicago O’Hare may receive red carpet treatment this summer with United’s first new Red Carpet Club to open since 2000. The enhanced club that has more than doubled in size and has new furniture and a modern design now offers travellers a more pleasant environment to work or relax.

“Our guests tell us they want to be comfortable and productive when travelling, and United’s new Red Carpet Club at O’Hare offers both – more personal space and additional work areas with complimentary Wi-Fi service,” says Graham Atkinson, United Airlines – Executive Vice President and Chief Customer Officer. “Whether our guests want to relax or finish a presentation, the Red Carpet Club will now give them more ways to get the most out of their travel experience.”

The new club includes power outlets accessible from nearly every seat and creatively designed work stations, enabling business travellers to be productive in a more casual environment and reflecting the current trend blending leisure and work. Enhanced food and beverage options in the club will include two serving areas, a bar and two self-service juice and soda stations.

The club is adjacent to gate B18 in O’Hare’s Terminal 1, and customers will be conveniently located near many of the international flights operated by United and Star Alliance partner Lufthansa. The club is available to Red Carpet Club members and customers traveling internationally in United First and United Business, and any United customer may purchase a one-time pass for $50. These customers and members also receive complimentary Wi-Fi service powered by T-Mobile HotSpot.
