United Airlines voted ‘Best American Airline Serving China’

19th December 2008 Print
For the fourth consecutive year, frequent travellers polled by Business Traveller China voted United Airlines the ‘Best American Airline Serving China’ in Business Traveller China’s 2008 annual travel awards.

“We extend our appreciation to the travel-savvy readers of Business Traveller China for naming United Airlines the ‘Best American Airline Serving China’ for the fourth straight year,” said Sidney Kwok, Director, Greater China, United Airlines. “This is a tremendous honor for United Airlines, and we will look forward to winning again in 2009 by continuing to provide travelers in China with the best quality products and services available.”

The Business Traveller China Travel Awards is one of the most prestigious accolades for top industry players in China. Each year, the magazine polls frequent travelers from across the region to hear their opinions on airlines and travel industry services. The 2008 results are verified and compiled by Synovate, an independent global market research company.

United customers in China can look forward to increased convenience during their travels with EasyCheck-in Online (ECO). The service will enable all United and United Express passengers worldwide to check-in online, which United sees as a significant step toward putting customers more in control of their travel and helping to ease their way through the airport.

United is also the only U.S. carrier to offer three cabins of service on all of its international overseas flights. In addition to first and business services, United offers economy class with its Economy Plus seating, which provides up to 13 extra centimeters of legroom.

New services and continued accolades cap off a great year in China that saw United’s successful performance as the Official Airline Sponsor of the United States Olympic Team. With 2009 just around the corner, United Airlines is optimistic for the year ahead and is confident that changes to the Sino-American aviation landscape, such as the 2008 ADS agreement, will lead to another successful year in China.
